Actor Tom Pedi was my grandmothers 1st cousin.  He was devoted to his craft and to his country but sadly was blacklisted in the 1950's due to his sympathies with communism. Altho Hollywood banned him from working in films he always had a home in the theatre. HIs "unAmerican activities" included being a decorated veteran of WW2 having taken part in 7 invasions as a medic (who refused to carry a gun).  A more generous, tolerant,righteous  and KIND person you'll never meet. He was beloved by everyone who knew him  and whenever people remember him to me they do  so with with warmth and gratitude...a beautiful legacy.  I love him dearly.
