In Loving Memory

Mr. Anthony Pagano passed away this afternoon.  I'm sure his family and close friends could tell you many stories of just how wonderful he was.  I'm sure they could give you many examples as to the kind of person he was.  I didn't know him well, but I have known him for a long time, since I was a teenager.   So I can tell you at least a few things that I knew about him.  

Mr. Pagano was kind and sweet and gentle.  He always had a smile on his face. Anytime I saw him, he was welcoming and made me feel right at home.  He was so pleasant to be around and was sincere in asking how I was doing.  He was kind to my children, and I know he adored his own grandchildren. 

His presence will be missed by many.

And right now his family could really use your prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.

And may your perpetual light shine upon him.

May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.

Thank you.
He is missed and will be for a very long time.

I have a quote from It's a Wonderful Life that I have printed around Jack's photo on my desk at work and I'll share it with you because it also applies to grandpap....."Each man's life touches so many other lives, and when he isn't around he leaves an awful hole." For Jack it is 9 years later and it is still true as I am sure it will be for us with grandpap.....

Hope to see you all soon.
Love ya,
