I've known you most of my life and can honestly say that you were the type of man who would do anything for anyone. You had a big heart and knew the importance of family, showing it through your sentimentality. You've shared so many great stories about my dad and uncle (may they both rest in peace). Now I know you're reunited with both of them and talking cars. I'll always think of you when I'm in a record store, an antique shop or listing to music from the 50s. Most importantly I'll never forget the bond you had with Vincenzo - who will never forget you either. Thanks for all the advice you've given me, all the toys you've fixed for Vin and all the happiness you gave my mom. I'll miss you.
