Adele, Stephen, and Kevin,
It has given me so much pleasure over the years to see the happy photos of “Mr. Sammarco” since you moved to Florida. He always insisted I should call him “Vinny” but I could never do it as he reminded me so much of my own father with his love for soccer (they actually talked a few times at Wheeler games) and their similar ethnic backgrounds. You were blessed to have had a very special man as a role model. I can only wish that you will treasure all your happy memories to keep him alive in your hearts and that his legacy of kindness will go forward through his “boys”. Bless you, as you celebrate a life well-lived and one to be proud of!
Though I can’t be there in person, I will be there in spirit, my friend.
