To the families of Stanley Pelson, (Stash)
Mike, Steve Vin Mike,
It is with heartfelt sympathy that I feel sadness in my heart but also laughter! It brought back so many good memories of Franklin Avenue and those days 💝! Nobody said it'd be easy and Good Times lately are few and far between! To say it in my own words. Life is so short and fleeting as you are well aware just know that that was a beautiful tribute you did to your father your grandfather your great-grandfather and Rose's husband. He was a gentle giant he didn't say much but when he did it was either funny or you moved! What a great legacy he left behind it just goes to show you it isn't always with who made you it's who raised you! Sorry for your loss and just know he's always in your heart and soul.
Sincerely always and forever more,
Gary & Patty Paterno
