To The Family-
We are deeply pained and words are of no help in expressing the sorrow we feel at this moment.
I am so sorry for your loss. I still cannot believe you’re gone. You guided me in the right path for ten long years. You taught me how to put on my football equipment the right way and you were always there when I needed you. What I will remember the most as well was that he loved to stop by and eat and take home meals. He loved to eat. He never failed to light up a room with his smile and you loved you’re cigars. I will miss you very much.
with deepest sympathies, Jon Vurno, Donna’s son
