It was with great sadness that we read of your father's death over the weekend. We lost touch with your family years ago and often thought about him and you. His name still comes up when we reminisce with Cal Warner. We have wonderful memories and will be forever grateful for his years of faithful service as it has had a positive impact upon our lives for over 45 years now. We pray you will find comfort at this difficult time.
Still in Glastonbury if you wish to reconnect,
Gary and Connie DeCrescenzo
