    Dear Erin & Colin,
    So many years and so many places we have memories of with mom and dad, happy, laughing, some emotional, yes we even cried together, but we had each other to share our feelings. Traveling through locks on the Erie Canal was one of our high points of our times together.
    Watching you two grow up into the women and man that you have become is a tribute to your parents and to yourselves.
    Ray enjoyed all the visits with dad and their many decisions on everything from world politics to religion. Oh boy did it get heated at times but they remained great friends to the end.
    Perri and Tony, your mom and dad, were one of the finest people we knew. And for that we are grateful!
    Sending you and Colin our love and prayers. With love

    Sarah Tardona and Family says:
    I just wanted to say that I first met the Smith family through Mrs. Smith she was my school bus driver. She then introduced me to her daughter and our close friendship took off from there. I do remember the first time I went the house Mr. Smith came out shaking his finger and saying "WE HAVE RULES HERE AND THEY WILL BE FOLLOWED" then he laughed and said "welcome". and ever since then we became friends for life. So when I moved we stopped by their house to say hello and catch up for it now has been over 25 years since I've seen them. Erin was so excited to see me and meet my Family and here comes Mr. Smith coming over shaking his finger and yelling "THE SAME RULES APPLY HERE ALSO" He was so funny. He will be greatly missed from all who had the pleasure to cross his path. Mr and Mrs Smith were like second parents to me I spent a lot of time at their home and even traveled with the family. Just getting to know them was very special to me and for that I will be forever great-full. Rest in peace.
