Vicki sorry for your loss.  I used to be your neighbor when I was a kid.  I remember your father from Georgia pacific and the bowling alley and he was a very friendly person.   I also came over to your house just to hang out.  Once again I am sorry

Uncle Bonnie truly was a awesome bowler.
Dad made a lot of money betting on him.
Mary, you are an inspiration, you know what in sickness and in health really  means.
Dad is still hanging in there (Fred at age 99) the last of the nine kids.
May God bless all of us this time of sorrow.

To The Ginoli Family:

I will never forget how helpful Bonnie & Mary helped me when I had the Meals OnWheels program -- they were one of my faithful volunteers.

In my thoughts and prayers.
