Rick, Lynn, Barbara, Dawn and Family,
Uncle Fred and Aunt Joan had a great influence on my life. Uncle Fred always treated me like one of his sons. He always
welcomed me into his home anytime. He was funny and kind. I remember the many meals, attended at the house and still smell the spaghetti and meatballs.

Though there is great sadness in parting with someone so dear to our hearts…………may you find comfort in the thought that your father is now in a place of peace…………and that each of you, by your caring, made a difference through a very difficult time.
Loving thoughts to each of you,
Aunt Peggy, Uncle Jack and Peggy Ann

My apologies, two years ago, I left a message but it seems to have been lost.

My condolences on the loss of our father. He really was a great man who helped mold the future of 6 kids.
Thank the lord for his patience and his endearing love for the few years I was able to know him.

Keep your chins up and remember, Family is Family….. always.

Andrew J Sano.
