    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
