    It was with great sadness to have received the news of Alfonso Morandi’s passing. It was just last week that we received a Christmas card written by him and I was thinking to pay a visit.

We wish to express our heartfelt condlences on your loss of husband, father and grandfather. We pray that you feel God’s love and comfort. Ray and Virginia

    Agnese, Larry, Lora & Families,
    We know all too well the loss of someone so close and loved. I always loved the times we spent together around Christmas time, when we were growing up. Your Dad was a great big teddy bear, and I will always remember with fondness his wonderful smile and the gleam in his eyes.
    You are always in my thoughts and prayers

    Mrs. Morandi and Family
    Sorry to hear about Chef. We have many fond memories of him when he came hunting with us and helped with our wedding meal. As Chef came up around November 11th, he taught us a lot about History. This man did more than his share for our freedom. We still think of him every time we moose hunt in the fall. Our deepest sympathies to you all.
