Dad.... I am blessed to have had you as an amazing loving father. You've left your hand print on many hearts. I was lucky to have spent the last night with you. You're remembered as a gentleman, with respect for others, the man with a song in his voice, twinkle in husband eyes and an infectious smile. You're at peace, and for that I'm grateful. I miss you so much and love you. Mimi xxoo

Dear Anne and family,
We are so sorry to hear about Sal's passing! Sal was one of the first people we met when Michael joined the Buffalo chapter as a "green" 9-year-old barbershopper, and he was always so warm and welcoming! We're grateful for the opportunity to have known Sal and pray that you'll sense the Lord's comfort at this time of loss.
Much love,
The La Scala family
