  1. It was with great delight and honor that I brought Holy Communion to Dino and his much-beloved wife, Winnie, who preceded him in death. Dino and I were former Bronxites (New Yorkers) and naturally, his stories from the past were full of marvelous adventures and humor. Dino was the epitome of “The Greatest Generation’s” finest; his faith, his unfailing love and devotion to Winnie and his children and their offspring, his deep patriotism and outstanding work ethic are only the tip of the accolades I could mention. Dino, I know you have found true and everlasting joy and peace and love.
