I would like to post this poem:
When day is done a figure turns and says his last goodbye although we cannot understand where he must go or why, but as he leaves our sorrow and our sad tears far behind, he moves ahead to seek the peace that every soul must find, for now he sails a different ship, upon a different sea, a voyage filled with love and hope and new discovery, and when the journey brings him to that distant, lighted shore, he'll be greeted by the outstretched arms of those who've gone before and people he has known and loved and voices from the past, will be singing out welcome news that he is home at last.
God Bless you all that knew and loved Sal because you are the lucky ones to have shared your life on this earth and remember the good times!
Love Patricia (Pat) Scaduto
