Mrs. Valente, Sal, Beth & family. My deepest condolences in the loss of your husband/father.

In my eyes, his personality was larger than life. His stories were filled with such passion as his hands and facial expressions added to greatly to the point he was making. But what I remember most, was how warm and inviting he (and your family) was whether at home in Somerville, the Cape or the produce market where I saved his annual case of artichokes regardless how tight the market.

God bless you all. With love, Bob Somerville

Thinking of you and wishing everyone peace during this time. We will always remember our Uncle Sal and our times on the Cape. Much love,
Danielle and Kristin Macone
