    My dear Uncle and beloved Godfather — You graced my life in a very special way for which I will forever love you and remember you. Not for myself do I hold deep love and respect for you as God knows I should, because you were so kind, loving and encouraging to me through my life, but I hold you in high regard for the good heart you had towards my Dad, your older brother Al. You gave of yourself so that he could live a happier life. And soon you will join him and your other two brothers Ed and Freddie and heaven will be graced with the Sarno Brothers. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Aunt Madge and to my dear cousins Ann, Steve & Elaine. I Love you all very much. My family and I are deeply sorry for your loss. — Richie, Betty, Justin & Kelsey Sarno
