"I?m keeping a candle lit in memory of my brother-in-law Al. A very positive influence he has been for this family of ours, a deep loss is felt. Mixed with gratitude for the Responte sons/grandsons/nephews/cousins/second cousins Al leaves as his legacy, such true gems they are. Love to the family."
