Dear Cicale Family, Your parents/grandparents were an inspiration and support to us for years. I know they are still supporting and inspiring us from heaven. I can still even check with your dad for crossword puzzle answers and talk over spiritual puzzles with your mom. I'm glad they're together again. Thinking of them makes me smile. Sheila Tremper

Our deepest condolences to the Cicale family. We will miss Roy at the Birch Hill dinner table for lunch, where we met almost daily. We had many interesting conversations and will miss his dry sense of humor. He spoke frequently about his wife and family and his former life in New York.
We like to think that he is with his beloved Mary, now.
