  1. Grandpa was a legendary man in my life, and will continue to be. For me, he was legendary in heart, strength, and character. He was generous without bounds. Grandpa proved how, with the power of our hearts & minds, we have the strength to realize our goals. Over time, I have seen Grandpa’s greatest qualities blossom in my own father – and in that, I know, Grandpa will never be gone. I am so proud to be a Lucibello. Grandpa, I love you and miss you.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Dom’s passing. He was a good and true friend of mine for many, many years. He was a dear part of that remarkable group of people that spent many years together having fun, going on trips and playing cards. Please accept my condolences and those of my children Madeline Carr and Mike Savo. May he rest in peace. Love and Sympathy Michael Savo and Family
