  1. My deepest sympathy especially to Janette and her family. I know how it feels to lose a dad since I lost mine when I was 14 y/o. I’m very sorry for your loss my friend. May your Dad find peace with the Almighty and remember he’s looking over you along with the angels. My thoughts and prayers to Mr. Dante Pelea and to his loving family.
