    Zia Adalgisa, Paula & Family, Lucio & Family – it is with heavy heart I write these words to all of you. Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved husband/father. It seems just like yesterday we all lived together in your Belfast home. We faced the hardships of imigrating to Canada, but we also shared many good times. Our families have been bonded not only by the ties we share but mostly by the memories we created which I will always hold dear for a life time. May Zio Francesco rest in eternal peace.
