Luigi had been a life long friend and close relative, we will all miss him. His pain is now gone and must be happy to be with his family up in heaven. I was saddened to hear of his sudden departure but remembered how glorious it must have been for him to see his loved ones again. Sorry I couldn't make to the wake or funeral but will remember you, Agnes and your children in my special thoughts and moments with God.
