  1. Lara Ann Acampora says:

    We miss and love you so very much Daddy. It\’s a year and a half since Mommy died and a little more than a year since you followed and I still cry every day/night for you both. I don\’t know how much longer we will be here but somehow ended up on this site wanting to visit you both. I hope you understand how hard I tried to keep it all going here but it is just too much and not having you guys here to see and hear everyday just breaks my heart. I never expect to go next door and the living room be empty and quiet. It\’s just Steve when he\’s home and he is list without you both as well. Just wanted to drop in and say hi and let you know there isn\’t a day that goes by that years aren\’t shed and my heart hurts for both of you. I love you Mom & Dad and always will. Please protect us, especially Mia and Emmy who need every bit of love left on your hearts. I\’m so sorry I couldn\’t do more for you guys. You deserved the world and everyone who knew you loved you instantly, for your never ending smiles, kindness and sense of happiness no matter how little we always had. I will love you til my last breath. ??
