  1. I cry every time I think of you as I am saddened. I am so sorry we did not get the chance to say good-bye Geno. You were one of my very best friends and I will always cherish the time we spent together. I relied on our friendship for your wisdom and advice.
    Hold me a spot on that bowling team i know you formed by now with David Brown, Ray, and now Tommy.
    Love you brother and miss you much, much more.
