Hi Carl,

Carl.Pio touch many lives just as you have.I will always remember him as the gentle giant who was so easy to talk too.He always loved when Tommy Pam.the(ace).Neil(bonehead)Freddy(flea) and myself would come in; he'd tell us some of his stories and we would share some of ours.Tell him that he is in our hearts and prays.

Hey Tommy

It has been a long time, hope all is well with you, John Peter and Donna. I remember your Dad very well as well as the rest of your family. Your Dad was more than life to the entire neighborhood. He went well beyond just filling prescriptions.

Anyway take care and it was very good to see your name after so many years.
