Our Dad was a kind and giving man we could count on. He loved his children and grandchildren, we loved him and will miss him dearly. Worry no more Dad, Rest in Peace with your Saviour Jesus Christ.
I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Geno. I remember him as a quiet, lovely man. The one memory that I will always carry with me is of him riding his bike. We would always see him, wave and say hi. Again I am very sorry for your loss. Coleen.
