Our deepest sympathies to Raffaela,Mario, Rosemary, Sonia and entire Family. Riccardo passing is with profound sadness as he was such a humble , kind , respectful , giving and considerate soul. We lived across the street in old Port Arthur Neighbourhood and lifelong friends. Riccardo loved his family and neighbourhood friends. He received such joy in simple yet important traditions such as gardening , making organic tomato sauce, peppers , wine etc .
Even in the time of his guarded health , not once did he ever ask of anything , rather he always enquired if we were doing well. It was an honour to be part of his life , as a friend and healthcare provider.
We will miss but never forget Riccardo ....
