Estelle, George, Glen. Saying I am sorry for your loss isn't enough, your Dad was a Fine Man, my Dad's best friend and a person I will always admire.

George and family. Sorry for your loss. Losing a father is not easy, but the memories you share will be with you always. We are going through your pain still after losing Danny, so hopefully they have met up in heaven. Prayers to you all.

Dear George & Family:

You had the gift and privilege of spending a majority of your life with a wonderful and loving father, friend and sage companion. Dad will always remain within you and with you throughout the rest of your life. Another gift of such a great person.
Your sadness for the earthly loss of Dad will soon turn to a pleasing sweet sorrow. He will always be there to talk to you and to guide you in your life's journey.

Michael & Ann Cantore
