    Dad, you are so missed. You leave behind children, your grandson Dominic, and many family and friends who loved you and appreciated all the good you gave this world. Both you and mom left this earth young and for reasons I cannot understand. But I do know that now you are at peace, with Mom, Aunt Irene, and your parents. You waited a lifetime for this reuniting. And I know you are happy now. We miss you more than any word can ever describe, and we hope that you and Mom are looking down as our protecting Angels now. Rest in Peace Dear Father, and NEVER forget how much we loved you, and how sad we are by your departure into the Heavens. We will all see you again, but until then, I love you and miss you Dad.
