Dick and I knew Victor for 15 years. He was a wonderful man, a great friend, and a wonderful Catholic. He was a joy to know and to love. The world will be a little smaller without him. Rest in Peace, Victor, in the arms of your God. Carole Crino

My thoughts and sympathy go out to your family. Terry was a delightful guy, very witty and funny. The Grove street neighborhood lost a good neighbor when he moved to Holliston. He was missed. Your mother was
delightful too. Terry often came back to NLF and visited some of the older neighbors which was appreciated by the families.

Donna and Nancy,

I was very sad to hear of the news of you dad. I hadn't seen your father in a long time, but have such nice memories of him. He was one of the first people to welcome us into the neighborhood. He was always so friendly and nice to our family. He always had a smile and something nice to say and of course a great laugh.

He was always an educator. I'll never forget something he said to me when my kids were young and learning about tolerance in school. He said schools shouldn't be teaching Tolerance they should be teaching Acceptance. And that when he grew up they didn't tolerate people they accepted them.

A very wise man.

Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
