Not sure what to say?

I am Dad's first born and I have been very close to my Dad for virtually all of my life. I will always have fond memories of my Dad and get a warm feeling in my heart when I think back over the years. I recall going to the dumps with my daddy and with him to collect the rents in “Haywards” as he would always call it, when I was a little girl. There was nothing special about the dumps or the Hayward rentals-but it was the journey that mattered just him and me in his pick up truck, daddy's...

There is a big loss in our family with myBrother-in-law Nick's passing. He was a good brother-in-law,a stern by loving Father to his three children and a Caring and wonderful husband to "The Love of his life" my sister Jeannie. May My sister Jeannie and Nick be together in Heaven. We will all miss them for the rest of our time on earth.

I am sorry to hear of Nick's passing. I was a young boy who lived across the street on 90th Avenue, in Oakland. My mother, Marion Winters, was both a neighbor and friend to the Francone family. I can still remember Nick as an imposing figure, with a great intensity in his expression. And, with great irony, I was reflecting on Nick, Benny and Candida this past week. You can be assured that Nick is now with the angels.

Sleep with the angels dear friend. You have had a tough road to to follow this past year. Now your with your true love Jeannie. God bless you.

I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. I'm sending you a hug from afar.

I am so sorry to hear of your Father passing. I remember Nick in high school at Castlemont. He was in my sister's class of June 1949. I graduated in June 1951. Nick signed my year book that I had for 1949. I was so excited as I thought he was so cute. He was still very handsome.
Now you have all the good memories of your Dad and no one can take that away from you. God bless you all. Again, I am so sorry.
