    Dear Aunt Emilia and Cousins,
    We are deeply saddened by Uncle Sam’s passing and though we are far…we are with you in spirit. Our memories of Sam have always been happy ones. He frequently reminisced about his life in Italy and his marriage to lovely Emilia. Sam spoke so graciously of his children, their spouses and grandchildren with gratitude for all they do for he and his wife. Our love and condolences to all.
    Ann, Vito, John, Gina, Rob and Robby
