I met Richard Cerazani a few years ago when he was writing a book about his dad who worked with my grandfather on Mount Rushmore back in 1941. The book is entitled “Love Letters from Mount Rushmore”. It’s a beautiful book written by a great guy. Richard pays tribute to the love affair between his mom and dad through the letters they wrote to each other. You also learn a lot about the trials and tribulations of our nations most iconic memorial. Richard also gave my family a great gift by including photos of Luigi and his dad, Arthur, along with a mini Luigi biography. How generous is that? Thank you, Richard.
