To the Trepagnier Family:

I have lived in the neighborhood of Mr. Trep practically all my life, and from a young child and still to this day, I've had the utmost respect and admiration for this kind and wonderful man. I would always run in to him at Bellina's, and even though he didn't know me by my name, I always had a, "Hey Mr. Trep" for him, and his reply was always, "How ya' doin' sugar..". Such a sweet and kind soul! He will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.

Rest in Eternal Peace "Mr. Trep".....
