  1. Thank You so much Gary for your wonderful thoughts and prayers. I know Grampa enjoyed your company as well as you taking care of him. We all thank you for all your hard work and compassion.

  2. Having spent time with you on just several occasions (not nearly enough), I found that I had met one of the most charming and entertaining men I have ever encountered……a precious and emotional gentleman. I will miss not getting to spend more time with you, but, rest assured, I will get to visit with you through your precious Jodi.

    It was a great privilege getting to know such a great and inspiring man. A only got to talk to him a few times but he was always so friendly. He once gave me a one Italian lira bill after we chatted about my trip to Italy, which I still keep 🙂 He was a very giving and lovable man. My most sincere condolences to the entire family. May you have good memories for comfort, the love and smiles of family and friends to ease your sorrow!
