From: Michael Fiorentino

When these graven lines you see,
Traveler, do not pity me;
Though I be among the dead,
Let no mournful word be said.

Children that I leave behind,
And their children, all were kind;
Near to them and to my wife,
I was happy all my life.

Now, and with no need of tears,
Here they leave me, full of years,
Leave me to my quiet rest
In the region of the blest.
-E. Robinson

We will miss our beloved uncle. Our most sincere condolences to the family.

To the whole Luciani family,

I have such wonderful memories of Francesco. Ever sweet, always smiling, forever welcoming. He always reminded me of my father and my Dad was very fond of him as well. They shared their stories of war time Italy whenever they would meet and could always find a laugh together. Hopefully they are sharing a good glass of homemade wine together now.

All of our love and sympathies,
Tina, Pino and family xo

Dear Antoinetta and family,
