Connie, Gary, Lorri and the whole Ambrosi family, We offer our deepest sympathies to you and all of your family. Gus will be missed. We spent many fun years with him down the shore, I will always remember his kind patience showing the kids how to bait and retrieve the crab traps. Wonderful memories!!! Through Lorri, your family was only an extension of ours. Thinking of all of you.
Love Liz and Len Petraska

Dear Connie, Gary, Jeanne, Bob & Nancy,
My heart is aching for you with Gus' sudden loss. I don't have to tell you how special he was. Gus always made us "Baldwin" girls feel like part of the family and am grateful to known him. I'm sure he's looking down from the 19th hole right now and smiling. All our love to your family.

Dear Ambrosi Family,
I did not know August but I am friends with his daughter, Jeanne. I know that he was a good father because he raised such a kind and loving daughter. The Sisters and I will pray for his soul and also for your whole family and we will ask God that August will be able to quickly get up to Heaven and continue to show his love for you by interceding with God for all of your intentions. God bless you all!
