My love goes out to Momma Cannarella, Denise, Gina and family. I hold so many fun memories staying at your house, your dad always out working on a car or watching kung foo movies and shows on the television. Always teasing me about how much I could eat and be so tiny! How could you not eat at the Cannarellas! I love you all and I am sending big hugs <3

Loosing a parent is never easy. Your Dad wasn't just there for you and Denise. He was there for alot of us. Sometimes keeping us in line and other times letting us have a great time. Memories are moments no one can take from us. I love you.
