I was always happy to see Angelo when we both attended extended family functions. We always had warm and friendly chats - a great guy. I guess I know daughter Jennifer the best because of the inlaw to inlaw connection. Jen is such a fine person - it would be no surprise to know she and Steve have wonderful parents.
My sincere condolences to Carol, Jen, Steve and the entire family.
