Rest in peace Vincenzo Arone. You exemplify the immigrant success story. You came, settled, worked hard, never wavering in your purpose, your family. Your children and grandchildren are a testament to your story. You can now rest while joining God in heaven along with your loving wife Regina. God bless your eternal life. The Dimitropoulos Family.

Cara Maria e Famiglia, Mi dispiace molto per la perdita di tuo Padre. Ricordo le piccole chiacchierate che Guido e tuo Padre facevano i primi tempi della tua trasferita nel vicinato. Io mi ricordo che quando andavamo a fare la spesa a No Frills, lo incontravamo e lui ci faceva vedere le sue casse di pomodori, tutto allegro per fare la salsa di pomodoro. Pensando a voi in questo tempo difficile.....

To Maria, August, Albina, Sammy and your families: Many memories from Markham Street come to mind, but the one that to me epitomized your father and his abilities and his personality was the day when he helped take down a Siberian Elm at Brighton that leaned the wrong way but got felled where it should be taken down. He then indicated the length of the rounds he wanted for firewood (about twice what I thought was reasonable), then proceeded to split them with two axes only. You must know that elm has so much cross-grain that a couple of years ago the Town that offered me some they wanted to take down on Little Lake Road at the back. I had no interest at all in it. And we will not go into the broken mirror on the truck that day. My thoughts are with all of you. Ian

Dear Maria, August, Albina, Sammy and families - Your dad was an amazing father and neighbour. I have so many great memories of both your mom and dad over the years. I remember a long drive to Hockey Opportunity Camp to deliver Sean and Sammy and all of the sudden at a picnic table your mom pulled out a traditional Italian lunch (a feast!). One favourite memory for me was from Albina and Albino's wedding watching your dad singing and dancing with the greatest smile. Keep the precious memories at heart. Love Cheryl
