Cosimo, Adriana, Andrew & Nicholas,
Paula and I were saddened to hear about the passing of Cosimo's dad. I enjoyed reading the obituary. Your dad was a special guy, and he'll be missed but never forgotten by the many people he touched. Sorry we couldn't be there for the services, but you and the Crupi family are in our thoughts and prayers. Best, Paul Thivierge & Family.
