Vicki, your dad was like a grandpa to me! I miss him everyday. He was such fun to take care of. We all miss him very much! I miss hearing argue with me about what time he was going to get up and get ready. He will forever be in my heart!

Vicky, I am so sorry for your loss. I've known Angelo for 60 years when he played music with my dad he was a wonderful person. The last time I seen him was at the Moose he liked to dance.

Mr Leoni waived every time I passed his house (22 years) which is one-half mile from mine. He was always out working. I had no idea he was Sharon's dad (who was an old friend from many years ago) or I would have stopped to introduce myself. I wondered why I hadn't seen him since last Fall. I will miss seeing his smiling face and wave. My sincere condolences to the family.
