Sharing your loss. My condolences to Barbara and Richard and your families. One of my fondest memories is that Uncle Sammy always had gum with him and would offer you a piece, but only half. He didn't believe you needed to put the whole wad in you mouth and that half was enough. Love Karin Rose DiPiazza
