I am so very sorry to hear that Uncle Sal passed away. My dad, Dennis Richey, shared the news with me. We reminisced about the things we loved about Uncle Sal and the times we spent visiting he and Aunt Marilyn out East and times when they visited us in Indiana. I must tell you that Uncle Sal was and still is one of my all time favorite people, favorite Uncle. Uncle Sal was larger than life. He introduced me to The Three Tenors and Harvey Wallbanger cake. And, we had our fair share of Sambuca together while sharing stories. How I loved hearing about his childhood, growing up in Brooklyn. Uncle Sal had many wonderful stories.

Please know how much I love Uncle Sal and that my heart goes out to you for the loss of such a wonderful man. My love to the family, to Aunt Marilyn.

Memories of Sal....Wonderful neighbor. We met him when he was selling his home in Jackson and thought of purchasing that home. When we moved to Lake Ridge 5 years later, we realized he lived on our street. We became friends and loved stopping by to talk with him during our walks. Wonderful memories of his Italian music playing so the whole neighborhood could enjoy it with him, especially on Columbus Day. When we told him that we would be traveling to Florida, he made great Italian CD's for us to listen to over the many hours of driving. We sang along and when we came home, he would call out "Toot-A-Root" (One of the songs on one of the CD's) through an empty cardboard cylinder. Oh, the aroma of his cigars wafting throughout the streets! One of our "Greatest Generation", who served his country with honor. He loved to talk about his family and his dedication to Marilyn was heartwarming. We will miss Sal. May he rest in eternal peace.
