I was deeply saddened to hear the loss of Zio Alex. My deepest sympathies to you all for this great loss. I pray that in this difficult time, the love of God shelters you and mend the pain as you move forward.
May God put him in a special place from where he will be watching us, the people who loved and cherished him. Death can never take a good man away, for, in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and continuous throughout generations. He was a great teacher and father to many and may his soul find eternal rest.
In this time of grief, you all are in my thoughts and prayers; I will always be grateful for the impact he had on mine and Rosella's life. I will forever cherish his leadership and guidance and words of wisdom he always had.
May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace needed to get through the days ahead. I pray you all find the love and strength needed to forge ahead in his huge absence. Accept my deepest sympathies.
Love you all

Uncle Alex was a wonderful and kind man. He was a hard worker and was part of the team of great relatives who helped build the first home I lived in without family. Always a smile on his face. Peace and love to all his family.

Alex will be missed by everyone that that he touched. Alex became a dear friend of my mother and father (giuseppe(Joe) and Laura Virgilio. They met in florida and developed a bond that will last. I think it was Alex's smile?

God Bless

I want to express my sorrow for your loss. When a loved one passes it is very hard to handle and a loss of a parent is even harder to get through. I wish you all the prayers, faith and strength to get trough the days ahead. Just know he is now at his true home with God and is young and vibrant again.
