Steve, we were deeply saddened to hear the passing of your dad. We will cherish forever the loving memories of Mr. B and then Compare Frank, until we meet him again. He was always well dressed, no mater where he went. Never refused to get dirty in his garden with an endless supply of vegetables. Over the 40 years, we saw fig plants grow into fig trees, which then needed to be buried in the late fall, fried tzipoli with anchovies, endless supply of hot chilly peppers, la peperonata with fresh Calabrese bread (which he drove to Woodbridge to buy), and a nice cold red piece of tzipongolo, and who could forget the short walk to his "custom built cottage" and the list goes on, all very beautiful memories! It is our turn now to say "I says to him I says" May our Almighty God open His arm and welcome you into His Garden. You will be truly missed but never forgotten! God Bless you Compare Frank! Compare David, Janie, Stefania and Gabriele.
