Thanks for being my friend and making that special place in my heart where you will always be. Till we sing together again. Love and Miss Ya

I so enjoyed teaching next door to Geno. I knew when he worried about his children by the number of times he fed me in a day. Once, he fed me a full meal every class period. He loved large! God's Peace to you.

Gino,
Thank you for being a dear friend. Thanks for all of your support to Montessori education in helping to start the school in Norwalk, serving on the Board and by teaching German in the school. We enjoyed your "Clean as your go" policy during the spaghetti dinners, your delicious spaghetti sauce and your wonderful salsa. We will always remember your "giving" attitude. May you rest in God's peace and may God's peace also be with the members of your family.
Peter and Rosann Larrow
