I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my longtime neighbor Phil Balestreri. Phil, I loved seeing your bright smile and your car zooming up the block with your arm always waving a big hello. We've been neighbors for over 40 years. It's been a pleasure living on the same block knowing Phil brought a little "Italian" love to the neighborhood. Miss you Phil and I know you're in heaven looking down on us. Prayers to you and your lovely family.
