Elaine, this is from Cousin Dave. I'd like to leave a private family reply if I may. Uncle Sal was my favorite uncle out of all. I've had many close uncles. Uncle Pete, Uncle Dan on my mom's side etc. But I had a very special connection with your dad. We were very close friends.
I know he looked forward to Sunday mornings at our homes. We all enjoyed his company. Sometimes we would purposely push his "hot button" just to get a reaction out of him. LOL. When we got him going, it was a blast. I love Uncle Sal.
I've already said a prayer to Our Lady so that he is now in Heaven with Aunt Flo. I'm going to try to upload a picture of him with a great smile. I hope the upload works. I'll see you at Festa. God Bless. Cousin Dave.
