Our loving father leaves us with unconditional love, beautiful memories, encouraging support and the love of music and good Italian bread (which he hand delivered to his kids every Saturday morning for the past 20 years). He'll be sorely and sadly missed by his family and friends, but Dad's ship has finally come in to be with the Lord and reunite with his son, and family and friends he has not seen in a long time.
