    Please accept our condolences and know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
    His Journey’s Just Begun
    Don’t think of him as gone away
    His journey’s just begun,
    Life holds so many facets
    The earth is only one.
    Just think of him as resting
    From the sorrows and the tears
    In a place of warmth and comfort
    Where there are no days and years.
    Think of how he must be wishing
    That we could know today,
    How nothing but our sadness
    Can really pass away.
    And think of him as living
    In hearts of those he touched
    For nothing loved is ever lost
    And he was loved so much!

    Teresa, Joe, Marie, Angeline and all the children,
    As close as I know your family to be and the love that you all share I know that this is where you will find your consolation and peace. Life is a blessing and passing in the face of continued discomfort is as much if not more a true blessing.
    Please accept my sincere condolences.

  14. My sincerest thoughts and condolences reach out to all the Arcuri and Gallo families. I was so saddened and heart broken to hear the news from my dear and loving boss, Maria Gallo. I pray you all find peace and comfort in the loving memories your father/grandfather/great grandfather left behind. The stories I would constantly hear from Maria, made him sound like such a funny and loving man. May you always remember him as such.
    God Bless,
    The Sarro Family
