    Anne Marie, Janet, Joseph and all your family, Ellen and I our heartfelt prayers and condolences on the passing of your Dad, Vito. We always enjoyed our visits with Vito when visiting including our discussions with him about how our home owners association pumped water into the canal behind our home. Our theories did not hold up to the training and experience of this wonderful civil engineer. Vito was always the consummate and welcoming host. He will surely be missed. Sending our love, Keith & Ellen
