Private Condolence

To the Florio family,

It is with great sadness that we offer our condolences on the passing of your amazing father/grandfather. We have been close friends and compari with your parents most of my life. They were loving, compassionate and ever so helpful to my mom. Over the years we have not seen much of each other, except at other funerals, but the respect and happy memories were always there. They were both so strong and I believe they passed that strength onto their children. I want to say a special thank you to Rose and Josephine who have been so dedicated to taking the best possible care of their dad. He is now where he needs to be... with his beautiful and loving wife Anna.

"Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine on him. May he rest in peace. Amen"

Ralph, Nicoletta De Palma and family

To the Florio family, your father, father-in-law, and grandfather will be missed by all. Both your mother and father and my parents visited each other frequently and enjoyed each other company very much.. Thanks for all you have done for me, Rose, Josie and Angela, especially bringing your Dad to visit my mother. Your father was a special and loving person. He suffered for 12 long years and God finally decided to bring him home to be with his wife, Anna, and all his relatives. Now the gang can get together again and enjoy each other company. All of our love, Michael and Mary Francone

My condolences to the Florio family . My thoughts and prayers to you . Stay strong.
A memory of your dad .... I would be walking the hallway at St Mikes Hospital near Queen Street with my stretcher and I can hear a familiar deep voice . I turn around and there would be Joe . We would say hi to each other and he would always end the conversation with “ tell your dad I say hi “
Nice man .
