Dear Fr. Rick and Pentello Family,
Linda and I are so sorry you lost your dad. I never saw him without a happy look on his face. And why shouldn't he have been happy with all of you surrounding him with so much love and support? You and your sibs are world class keepers of the fourth commandment to love your father and mother. I will always smile remembering how he was watching the "Pentello Family Singers" at your anniversary roast. You all made him so proud. You could see it in his face. You loved him when it counted, being with him when he became too frail to live alone. May God comfort you all in your loss.
