In Memoriam

My brother and sister-in-law – God Parents to my youngest daughter in 1979.


She passed away in 2016.

He passed away about an hour ago.  He was 88 years old.

In 55 years an unkind word never passed between us.  We had a lot of  private laughs being married to two sisters with their common idiosyncrasies.  Once a month on a Sunday morning  in our old age we two widowers  would have coffee and donuts together and smoke a good cigar out by his pool.

I will miss him and be gone from here for awhile.

Addio Vittorio


About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    Very sad news, Frank. But to be able to say that ‘In 55 years an unkind word never passed between us’ is something to treasure.
    Best wishes, Pete.
