|Dear Andrea, Francesca, Fredo and Dante,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Fred. Growing up he was always the fun uncle who would play with us and bring us the best gifts at Christmas time. They were always gifts that we really wanted, but my mother would think would be too expensive, so every Christmas we couldn't wait for him to come to our house!
I remember him as always being pretty quiet and soft spoken except when you got him dancing at a wedding! He really loved to dance and was hard to keep up with. He and I shared a love of all things sweet, especially my mother's cheese cake and apple pie! He shared my love of desserts over most vegetables so he never made me feel the odd one out at Thanksgiving dinners.
He was always so proud of all the exceptional achievements of Francesca and Dante! He shared his love of Italian culture with them from the time they were very young. I am happy that he no longer in pain and is at peace and watching over them and his lovely granddaughter, Renatta.
With sympathy, Sheila
