    I will always remember you as my, caring, intelligent and kind-hearted godfather who gave me a puppy a very long time ago. We were estranged for some time, but luckily, we recently reconnected. I am grateful for that. Rest in peace. You will not be forgotten.

    We have so many fond memories of Gaetano. He was always so kind and thought to us and our boys. He was so proud of his garden and would always give us bags and bags of everything he grew. He would make bread for us, knowing how much my kids loved it, even driving to our place to drop it off. He will always be remembered as such a generous man. We will miss him. Our condolences to Rose and John and the whole family. Sending our love.

    Condolences to Rose, Gio and the Riccardo family. Gaetano was a man who cared. He doted on his grandsons. He attended their school events and his pride was evident. He did not speak a lot but he did a lot. RIP
