  • To one of my dearest friends and also a very dear friend of my family, “sandman”, I pray that your journey “home” will find you at peace. Thank you for all the happy moments that I will always treasure in knowing you throughout the years. Your loving, kind and gentle spirit that always reminded me of a teddy bear. I also will remember how you proudly and lovingly spoke about your daughter Tracey every time you held her in your wonderful heart. Although I did not get a chance to meet her, I could feel how special that she must be. I would like her to know how sorry I am to hear of such a great loss. I feel a void in my life, but, I shall not allow myself to feel that void in my heart and soul because I will carry my precious memories of Stephen with me forever. So in closing, I would like to send my condolences and sympathies (and that of my family) to beautiful Tracey, Karen, Donna, Steve, Nicolo, Elly, Stephen’s grandchildren and all of the continuing Lo Porto family. I would like to hope that he is playing guitar with my late older brother Alan again in our heaven above. Also, thank you for your service to our country, Steve, you shall never be forgotten. Until we all meet again, I am sending this with love with a name that you gave to me a very long time ago as a cb handler with my younger brother Dan, “sweet lady”. Please know, that as your family lays you down to rest, I will be thinking of you and saying my prayers.. I will apologize for myself, for not being able to attend, my heart and soul will be there for all of you. May God Bless and keep us all in his care. Vicki Compston………P.S. I would also like to let you know that there was a lot of love and respect for Mr. Matteo and Mrs. Serena “Dolly” Lo Porto from the old neighborhood. What a wonderful family, stay well.
