Following the Mass, relatives and friends are invited to join the family at a nearby restaurant. (Details to be shared at the Mass.)

Andy and Gina, - I met your dear parents Frank & Dorothy forty plus years ago. Your Dad became my mentor guiding me into my career. During the years we met at numerous seminars and functions and becoming friends. Your parents knew I had and loved Corvettes telling me numerous times of you and your Corvette passion. They were always so very wonderful and caring people, they are the true representatives of The Best Generation. I'm thankful for meeting you via the Corvette Club and becoming friends. Andy, you have both of their wonderful traits, they are looking down on you with love and happiness.
