  24. Dan was a great person. He loved his wife, family and friends with his heart.
    He was always there to lend a hand and made you feel like you were part of his Italian family. I especially remember the many times he would have a special bowl of ice water for my kids on hot summer days of walking in the Stonemoor neighborhood. He taught Jack the love of ice eating!
