To the Piantedosi Family, I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I still remember the days on Elm street that your Dad would walk by to go to Brady's beef. Those were the days. And they were the best days. Give your Mother my love and I will keep your dad in my prayers.

My sincere condolences go out to the Piantedosi family. John and Marion were wonderful to my wife and I when we lived in their rental property right next door. John was a very nice man who could fix anything in that garage of his.
I will miss him. He was a wonderful man.
