I remember the tenderness and the love that Mia showed her father through the things that she did for him right to the end. Always talking to him about family memories, his jobs, his brothers and always indulging him with the food and the drives that he enjoyed.
In the end, Jack may have been the father, but Mia always fiercely protected him and took care of him as if he was her son. To Jack, I enjoyed playing Scopa with you although not the losing part. You were a Scopa shark.

Dear Donata, Anna Maria, Mike, Domenic and family, we are very sorry for your loss.
Jack was a kind and patient man.
When I was a little girl I didn’t eat much so Jack would play silly games with me in an effort to get some food in my belly.
Merciful heart of Jesus grant peace to this soul!
We offer our deepest condolences.

I met Giacomo many times with his daughter, Anna Maria, and his
wife. Whenever I spoke to him in Italian, he would respond to me with a smile. I will miss seeing him with Anna Maria holding him by
the hand.
May he rest in peace.
Together with my family we extend our sincerest condolences.
You are in our hearts and prayers.
May God's blessing and comfort be with all of you.
