“The void I left will always be there because when you walk in the house there will always be my empty chair. Although it’s empty never forget even from heaven I will always be here. Never forget the laughs and tears. Always remember that my love will always be here. A family so large should never stray apart always remember the love we have in our heart.” ~Angela DiPietro
