    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I just found out late Saturday that uncle Sam went home.I am so sorry that I missed the services. I can’t believe uncle Sam was 101 years old! What a life he had! So Blessed! I am a cousin on nanna Dolorada Franco’s side of the family. Know that uncle Sam is finally reunited with his family in heaven. May your loving memories of him bring you love and comfort always. Sending you love and healing during this difficult time. Love your cousin Josie Ferro-Magistro. XXXOOO
