I am so grateful to have seen Uncle David at Amy's wedding. We had a nice chat out on the terrace. He talked about the family with love and devotion. I told him he was my favorite and how much he meant to me. I will always remember his sweet kisses and hugs. He, Mom, and Mimi are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could be there to comfort and reminisce with Aunt Toni, David, Mary,Julie and their families. I was touched by the memorial video. Trees have been planted in his memory and his spirit will live on in our hearts. All my love, Jeannie

Oh Toni I am so sorry you lost your husband. He sounded like a fun man. I pray that you find peace in the memories you made together. Thinking of you and keeping you in prayer during this hard time, Michele McCray (Norma and Joe Rubino's daughter)
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
