To Mrs. Luchetti ,Lori,Mary Kay and your entire Family I was in attendance of the beautiful mass held for Mr. Luchetti and it brought memories of my Dad's passing who was 77 at the time. I believe with all of my heart they will always be with us and I remember when I first met him I was at the bank with my Dad who praised him and respected him. What a wonderful man he was and I am so happy to have known him. You all are such kind and compassionate people and I will forever be blessed to have gotten to know you all through our Fathers who we loved so very much and are up there together preparing all of us to be together again. May God bless you all and know that he will always be with you . Love , your friend Jennie
