Condolence from Lindsey Jepson and family on October 30th, 2014 10:20 PM

Nonna please know that my heart aches for you. I feel so blessed to have been your and Nonno’s one and only blonde ‘grandchild’. When I recall my childhood, my adolescence, my growth into adulthood and my journey into parenthood both you and Nonno we always there to support me. The lessons in love, family and food that Nonno taught me will live forever in me. I will pass them on to my kids as they are a large part of who I am. Thank you to all your kids and grandchildren for sharing such a wonderful man and grandparent with me.
Nonno once told me “he was a rich man”. He said he needed nothing more because he was rich in family. Only a man with a beautiful soul could truly get that. It’s a mantra I try and live by daily.
He will missed always. I loved him dearly as I do all of you.

Our prayers are very much with all of your family…What to say…39 years ago we thought Domentrio was just selling us a house…Little did we know he included us in the most wonderful family we have ever known. We have been so so blessed to have all of you as “family”.
