Nydia Lassalle Davis' parents, Clemencia and Nicholas. I just uploaded a biographic book of short stories that begins with Nicholas La Salle's Great Great Grandmother, Marcelina La Salle born in 1805 in Puerto Rico. It is titled The Circle of Life: The Two Century Transformative Journey of A family in the Americas (From Africa to Puerto Rico, to Loisaida, to El Bronx, to Brooklyn). As Nydia Lassalle Davis leaves Memorial Sloan Kettering today after many years of compassionate service, the book of short stories in our son's voice is a tribute to her and her parents. Publication in spring 2016.
