Zio Giovanni was one of the most kind hearted person I know. He was always willing to lend a hand with whenever was going on. We will miss seeing you at the garden on Saturday morning's. He had many stories to tell about growing up in Italy with our Dad and always made you laugh. We will all miss you dearly, thank you for all the great memories.
May you rest in peace with all of our beloved families.
Frank Izzo and family.
