Bobby, Sal and Anthony,
I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was a great guy who was generous to everyone. I was very happy working for him at Sal's Bakery. May he rest in peace with the angels.

One of Sal's loyalist customers. Every morning he would greet me with a smile, when I would enter his bakery to buy my spinach pie. May he rest in peace. Peter
