Dear Rose and family, I was very sorry to hear recently of Sandro's death. I remember you and the whole family with fondness and happy memories of meeting at the Spanish Steps in Rome and again in Venice when Dan and I heard "Hey, Carnevale!" while we were on a gondola ride. It was Sandro, Rose, and Virginia on a sightseeing excursion to Venice. Thanks for the good times and the warm hospitality in Cranston all those many years ago. God bless you all.
