  9. Joseph Arcuri :

    Uncle John you had an exiting and adventurous life, leaving your hometown with your brother Fedele (my father), for France, in search of a better life for your family. You not only did it once but risked it again to come to Canada. I can’t imagine what the both of you were thinking at the time but it took a lot of courage willpower and absolute determination. Your gambles paid off which is evident of the legacy you have left behind. I will cherish my very fond memories of us in France and beautiful memories created with our families here. We are all at peace knowing that you are at peace. I know that you are now reunited with the ones that have gone before you. I am honoured that I will be by your side in your final journey to paridise. You will always have a special place in my heart.
