Jennie, Joann, Fran and family, I am so very very sorry for your loss! Vito was such a happy go lucky guy that could light up a room with his presence! I will always remember him singing out his Italian songs at Cheryl and Steve's wedding reception in Vegas. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to meet him. Our deepest sympathies to all of you! Kenny & Trish

I recently had the privilege of becoming part of a wonderful family. A family that has taught me the meaning of tradition and the joy it can bring. I will truly cherish the memories of sharing time around the dinner table during the holidays with Vito. Each time I see a bottle of Carlo Rossi, or a can of poppy cock I know I will smile. I'm so sorry for everyone's loss. It is clear he was a man who touched many peoples lives... including mine. ~Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown~

To Vito's family, I am so sorry to hear of Vito's passing. The Lord will put him right to work as he enters those pearly gates, because Vito was never one to just sit! Be at peace knowing he is at peace! And let all the wonderful memories fill your hearts and minds over the coming days. My prayers will be with you, Love and Peace, Irene
