To the Ballatore Family. Our family is sorry for your loss, and we know that God will listen to your prayers and give you the strength during this difficult time, like Psalms 102:17 says "He will certainly turn to the prayer of those stripped of everything, and not despise their prayer."

Uncle Coo-Coo and our Dad, his brother Spano having fun playing cards!
He was the best Uncle ever and was always happy with a big smile on his face to greet you. Loved to bake and cook for him because he appreciated everything he ate......:)
Our prayers and thoughts go out to his daughter MaryAnn and son Albert. May your memories bring you inner peace knowing that he is safe and in the company of his wife and many other family members, together in heaven.

Our Uncle CooCoo as we fondly called him was always happy with a big smile for you every time you saw him. What I remember most, is him and his brother Spano ( our dad) laughing, playing cards and enjoying eating......their happiness times were eating!! Hope you get to play cards with Dad up,in heaven . Our prayers and deepest thoughts go out to MaryAnn and her family as well as Albert and his family. May you allow your memories to bring you inner peace.
