YOU HAVE MY CONDOLENCES ON YOUR LOSS MAY GOD COMFORT YOU IN YOUR SORROW 1 PETER 5:6,7

Uncle Joe was a good guy. I really appreciated the time he took to sit down and video record with me the history of the Piazza family and his stories of WWII.

I also remember the time he drove my Nonni and Nonnu up to the Italian Village. He drove them in a early 60's automobile that was still in MINT condition for the mid 80's. I always remember thinking how did he keep that car looking so new.
