Michele, Tony, Dino and Mrs Nanni; My heart breaks for you on the passing of your beloved husband and father. He was one of kind and they just don't make great men like Mr. Nanni anymore! I always loved his dry sense of humor and sweet quiet shyness. I know he rests in Our Lord's loving care. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. May God hold you in the palm of his hand and wipe away every tear. Much love, Mary Beth, John, Sheila and Family
