May your father rest in peace safely in the arms of God. I am sorry for your loss to especially Frankie and Ramona, but to all he called his family because we can remember his smile of yesterday, his wonderful food to nourish us, his misunderstood heart that loved us, and his being human with flaws, as we all share.Now he can watch over us and we can be thankful for that.I know he will always watch over you. He is in a loving place. Love, Tony.
