Lucio when I first met you I kept thinking what a nice guy. After knowing you for several years all I can say it that you were not just a nice guy but a loving good man. This was always obvious when you talking about your family both here and in Italy and about my sister Susanna. You will be missed. May the Lord take you into his loving embrace. Carmella

I am Susanna Thomas’s Brother and was so very sad to hear of Lucio’s passing. My sincere condolences to his entire Familia!! The first time I met Lucio I liked him right away. He was a very happy & warm person and I doubt there were very many people who didn’t feel comfortable around him right away. I was fascinated by his background as a Master Mason and he even took the time to show me some of his magnificent stone work. He spoke lovingly of his beautiful wife who had passed and of course his children & grandchildren! I shared many meals with him & my sisters and although he didn’t show it, he enjoyed his food, especially the Italian variety! I am comforted by the fact that he is now in Heaven with his Beautiful Bride whose death he obviously never really got over ...
Ciao Lucio & R.I.P.,
Jim
