Not sure what to say?

Sorry to hear of the loss of your Father.

Napoli family, I am so sorry for your loss. Nap had a great smile and I loved his laugh. Sorry I couldn't be there to pay my respect, but you are in my thoughts.

In every childhood memory I have of Fonso, as my mother always called him, he is smiling.The Napoli family home on Clinton Street in Camden was always warm and welcoming to my family and Fonso remains a part of the fond memories I have of the many visits our families exchanged so many years ago. My wife and I offer our sincere condolences to Dale and her children and to all the Napolis at this time of great sorrow,
