I am so upset that I wasn\'t able to visit Julio like I had intended. He was the closest person that I knew of to my father (Frank Sorrentino, Jr.), his cousin, who died in 1960 when I was four years old. I have many pictures of he and his family. He took care of my Grandmother, Mary Sorrentinoi, for many years when my brother and I could not. I am so sorry I didn\'t get to see him again. God bless Tammy and his family. May he rest in peace.
