My sincere condolences on the passing of Mr Silletto to all my dear friends in the Silletto family. I speak on behalf of the whole Jarjour family when I say we were deeply saddened to hear of his passing. It is a big loss to the entire community. He was a man of great accomplishments and most certainly lived a very full life. May we all be as fortunate. My 1st real job was at Lincoln Life. Peace to you in this difficult time.
