Barbara, Ronnie & Sal, Jr.: We are sorry we were not able to make your dad's services. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your dad had a good heart and a very green thumb. I remember opening my door on New Year's Eve many times to find fresh picked cabbages on my doorstep. He will be remembered for his generosity and thoughtfulness. I am sure he is checking out land in heaven to put in a garden.
God bless you and may he rest in peace.
