I am saddened to hear of Mr. Andriolo's passing, please accept my condolences. I have many nice memories of him when I was growing up.When me, my brothers and kids in the neighborhood were playing baseball or football in the street Mr. Andriolo ALWAYS smiled & waved to us, sometimes he would even stop to say a few words (not the response we got from other neighbors). When I was older I enjoyed talking with him at the gas station. He was a great guy who was looked up too in our neighborhood. Also, it's sad to see the passing of another heroic World War Two veteran. Mr Andriolo and men like him, did so much for our country. God bless all of you.
