    Gary, so sorry to hear of your dad\’s passing. I have very fond memories of singing in the St Joachim\’s choir with him and John Kudzia and the other men of the parish. Madeline Mullen played the organ. We sang the Sunday 10:30 high mass for several years, and the Easter and Christmas midnight masses too. Those were great times in my life, and I have your dad to thank for those memories. I\’m in North Carolina, so I won\’t be able to see you in person, but you and your dad and mom will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    With sincere condolences,
    Roger Ddio

    Augi was a great guy. I knew him as a drummer in Chanlers Drum Corp. He taught me a lot at age 15-16. A Cold Springer, we live in Wappingers Falls now at age 76 in good health.

    God bless Augi.
