    Jim, I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. My Grandma Gaeto lived across the street from your mom and dad and they were so kind and I can remember every Sunday coming to Patton on Palmer Ave to visit until my dad passed away in 1976. Your mom and dad both were very kind to my grandma and of course we remember playing with you all when we were just kids ourselves. Our thoughts and Prayers are with You and your entire family at this time. With Sincere Sympathy, Mary Gaeto Dodson and Family
