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.
