I remember back when I was in high school, Sal invited my with him to work third shift at the DMV in Providence. We sat in front of the computer and waited for phone calls from various local police department giving us licenses plate numbers that we would enter into the computer and then convey the registration information to the police. It was a fun night drinking coffee and listening to the radio. As the early morning sun was starting to peer through the windows people started to show up for their workday and we were relieved of our duties.
I dont remember the name of the place where we stopped for breakfast but I know we ate well. For me it was a adventurous all-nighter that I still remember from some Forty years ago.
I feel very lucky to have had the chance to spend some time with Sal last summer during your familys visit to California, as always, happy and in love with his wife, he was a wonderful person. Please let me convey my heartfelt condolences for your loss.
The world is a better place to have had Sal in it.

In every post that Kris ever made of her dad, he was smiling broadly, looking so joyful to be with his family. He was a blessing to his loved ones. This is the highest compliment that can be made of a man, a good husband and father. He is right here with you, Kris. In your heart forever. ❤
