    There are so many fond memories to cherish when it comes to Vinicio. For me personally I will miss his smile and sense of humour the most. There was no one better to light up a room than Vinicio.

    To the Grossi family and all those who knew and loved Vinicio Grossi,
    Today, Vini’s friends and family celebrated his life and bid him farewell. He would have been proud to see his loving children and beautiful grandchildren honour him today with their heartfelt words and song. I will always fondly remember zio Vinicio playing the accordion, talking hockey, and most of all, laughing heartily. Aimee and I would like to extend our sincerest condolences to all of you during this time of sorrow.
    Love,
    Aimee and Michael Musto

    Rita and family;
    Even though I never had the opportunity to meet your Poppa, I feel
    that I kew him from your stories of your dear Dad and knowing Christina and yourself I do feel I know part of your Pappa. I can imagine him playing the accordion sitting amongst the angels with such a big smile on his face. Your father has had a very long and pleasant journey which like all journeys , they come to an end. But he has left many memories behind for you to enjoy with Christina. Just your mention of Christina singing Ave Maria for her Nonno brought tears to my eyes. Please enjoy the memories of your father because that is all we have to live for are our memories. Enjoy them as long as you can and know that your father is now resting in peace.
    God Bless his soul and God bless his wonderful family he has left behind.
