My condolences to my Cousins - Johnny and Francie - and all of the Cinquegrana family and friends. Uncle Buddy's memorial services were absolutely beautiful. He was such a proud soldier for which we all should be very proud. I will always have my fond childhood memories to cherish of Uncle Buddy and Aunt Angie especially when they use to baby sit my brother and I - 50 years ago !!! That Aunt and Uncle team was the best and most fun !!! Thanks for all the happy times and be blessed in heaven!
