My father told a story about his irascible father, who locked himself in the bathroom to take a bath and then couldn't get out of the tub. My Aunt Annie called the fire department, and Uncle Danny climbed the ladder to the bathroom window to save the old man. "Danny, thanka God, thanka God," greeted him as he opened the window.
Uncle Danny was the sweetest man, and I'm glad I got to see him one last time a few weeks ago. Rest in peace dear man. My sincere sympathy to his family.

I remember Mr. D as a kind and gentle man who loved his family and community. He was a dedicated father, grandfather and fireman. My prayers and love go out to his family.

My deepest sympathies to the DiGeronimo Family on the loss of their patriarch. I would say words cannot express the heartfelt sorrow I feel about his passing. I am honored to have known him and to have called him a dear friend.
