    We are so sad to hear about Steve jr’s passing. I remember stories my parents told when Steve “just showed up” on their doorstep as a young adult. At any family gathering Steve would always add to my family lore. His would always be the warmest welcome. He was always especially kind to my mom. We will miss him. Our love and condolences to all of you. Irene, Dante, Denis jr and April

    Hello,

    Grief never ends… But it changes.
    It’s a passage, not a place to stay.
    Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith…
    It is the price of love.
