    Auntie Rosalba and Boys
    We are so very sorry for your loss. Our family sends lots of love and prayers to each & all of you. I have wonderful memories of Uncle Lino especially at holiday times when our parents stayed up late playing cards and visiting. We spent many summer Sundays at Bowness Park watching them play bocce and barbecuing. He was a hard worker and proud man. He is at peace and without pain now. God Bless
