I was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of cousin Tony. Regretfully, I will not be able to express my condolences to the Family in person due to recent back surgery (July 14th). I fondly remember as a child the times the Giancola kids spent at Uncle Dom's & Aunt Lena's "camp" on Uncas Pond, with our Depoto cousins. Those are golden memories. With deepest sympathy, Your cousin Mike
