    Dear Dennis, Lenny, and the rest of the family,

    We send our heartfelt condolences at this sad time. Uncle Bob will always have a special place in my memory; he and Mom were such devoted siblings and the affection they shared when they were together always spread to the rest of us. I will always be glad that we were able to visit him and Aunt Phyllis when she was still with us, and again to celebrate his ninetieth. He had those feisty Italian genes like Mom and Grandma, that’s for sure.

    With love,

    Greg and Phillip
