Mr P. I would say it was always a pleasure when you showed up for card games at your son's house, but let's be honest I always seemed to lose more money!! (Ha Ha) Over the years of getting to know you it was my pleasure. The love you had for your family was always evident. My you always be dealt a royal flush in the card games in the clouds. To the whole Pilato family you have our heart felt condolences. The Rodko's
