Gary and Maria were a big part of our lives not so long ago. My sister Molly and I spent many an evening with Aunt Ang and Uncle Henry, with your mom and dad, a young couple in love, before children. Your dad was always so dedicated to your mom, and they both couldn’t have loved their children more. I am very sad that your dad won’t be here to love you, but delight in his reunion with your mom. I am very sorry for your loss. Lovingly, Aileen Mansuetto
