  • Paula, Steven and Anthony:

    I knew your dad for about 15 years (when Tony his nephew and I met). He was such a nice man and I just loved the twinkle I always saw in his eye! We made it a point to stay in touch with him over the years even though we were living in Arizona. Tony was very fond of his uncle and I sure know why…. I am so very glad we were here in Massachusetts and able to be part of the services. Hugs to you all from Tony and I and may his memory live in your hearts forever…..
