We will miss Dino more than he could ever realize. He was someone you could count on for anything. He devoted his life to his family. He loved being a father and a grandfather, and especially a great-grandfather. The kids had the best Papa ever. He enjoyed every moment in the past sixteen months that he spent with River who brought him so much joy and happiness every day. May he forever watch over the kids and guide them.
