No I lay me down to sleep, I pray The Lord, my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray The Lord my soul to take. Hi Pop, Now that you are in the hands of God, you are free of any pain, suffering and hardship. For this I am thankful! The fact that I will never hear your voice or see you again is tragic and very hard to think about. I will forever carry you in my heart, where you will reside forever. God always takes care of his children Dad, just as you have your entire life on earth. Now that you are at peace and in heaven with God, I have yet another father to look after my family as well as myself. We all love you with all our hearts and you will be deeply missed every day. Love from all us, Gaetano, Brenda, Jessica, Danielle!

Pennstate has another armchair angel watching over the team. I raise a glass of red wine to Mr. “C”. And will always remember how much joy he got from the children. Our families were intertwined and we deeeply feel your loss. But the memories are far greater and we take them with us and move forward. With a deep love and gratitude Warmly Little Baldino
