This dear man and his wife were our neighbors for years, and they were really great people. I wish I could've told him how special he was before we moved away.

Leo... we sure had some good times together: fishing, gambling, gardening, playing cards, etc. I already miss you but will never forget you.

Without a doubt, one of the greatest people I ever knew. His passing has left me very sad.

Uncle Leo, your passing marks the end of the Pecorella era and the "old Italians" of our family. I hope you are enjoying the sounds of heaven that you could never hear on earth. I know your family is happy to be reunited with you. Love you!
