Just wanted to offer my condolences to Sam's family. He was such a great person that I always admired. I remember many times we were together growing up in the Carteret area and especially remember how he would always sing at the many weddings we attended together. He will be missed. May he be with our Lord at this very moment. God Bless to his family.
Cousin Joe Ragucci (son of Rose Nardi Ragucci).
