Antonietta, ci associamo alla prematura scomparsa di Leonardo. Lui era molto socievole, amichevole, sempre felice e non ha mai dato segni di quello che stava passando.
Le nostre piu' sentite condoglianze,

I’m so sorry to hear about Leonard. I met him last July in San Giovanni in Fiore. He is a long lost relative. We shared a couple meals and my wife and I sat next to him and his wife. He was very entertaining. I was laughing and enjoyed him so much. He reminded me of a cross between my father in law and Robert DeNiro. I only knew him for those few days. I enjoyed seeing his Facebook posts and hoped to see him again. I’m very sad that he’s gone and give my condolences to Antoinette and those loved ones left behind.

We will all miss his very unique and strong sense of humor ,Lenny had very strong family values and big a heart towards others family and friends,
avid sports fan in particular soccer and his favorite national league in Italy Fiorentina,as a young man he played the sport of soccer in Italy and when he immigrated to the USA he continued his desire to be part of the soccer teams in Phila Pa .
He will surely be missed by family & friends!
Rest In Peace caro cognato .
