  1. Rich, I am sorry for your loss. My dad passed a few years ago and still feel the loss. Our hope lies in the Lord and therefore in the promise of an eternal life for those who believe. My prayer is for your peace and comfort in that promise and that one day we will be reunited for a life in eternity with our risen Lord and our believing loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you, brother.
    In Christ I pray,
    Mike Burley

  2. Saddened to hear of Sam’s passing. Many memories of he and Gus during the Guetti’s years growing up. Sam and Gus were like extended family to all the neighborhood. Even after I grew up and left, when visiting the family,I’d stop in for cold cuts, sausage and bread. Sam would always be glad to see me and ask about Florida. Thank you Sam for the memories, you and Justin are together again. RIP.
