I just got to see this 4 years later!! Claudette was my mother Jeanette's cousin. My mother's father was Johnny Maturo's brother, Jimmy aka "Juicy". His wife Theresa left him with my mother and her sister Mary. I'm trying to fiure out whatever happened to Theresa - whether she ran off or was killed. She basically vanished.

Thanks so much,
