Heartfelt sympathy from Neil Armstrong staff and students. Joe was an amazing Fire Prevention Educator. He was so respected and the children loved him! He was very involved with our school. He was easy to work with. He became more than a visitor... he became my friend. I will miss him forever.... Laurie Ashodian

To Alexa, Claudio and Family and the entire Manuse Family:
Words cannot express the sadness that we all feel, our hearts are heavy knowing our good friend Pino is no longer with us. We have known Pino through our good friends, whom we call family, the Ferraras, and the moment we met there was an immediate connection, we were family. Alexa, we remember you as a baby and a little girl, and now you have grown to be this beautiful young lady, for which I know he was very proud of and he loved you deeply. You are Pino’s daughter, and you can hold your head up high knowing what a wonderful father and person he was.
We will miss his compassion, dedication and ability to bring people together. We will miss his smile, and laughter and will remember all the good times together. He was a kind, sweet, loving and genuine person, who always looked out for others, and loved his family dearly. He is now reunited with his parents and know that they are looking over you.
We thank God for his friendship and feel honored and blessed to have known him. He
was a wonderful human being and we all loved him and know we have an angel looking over us.

May he give you the strength to carry on. Our deepest and sincere condolences to you and your family and know that we are here for you always.
Saying goodbye to a wonderful friend: “Pino there are no words, our hearts are aching, you left so suddenly but God needed you. You will never be forgotten, and will forever be in our hearts, rest in peace dear friend.”
With our most sincere, heartfelt condolences, your Canadian Famiglia,
The Messina Family,
Mike, Lily, Michael and Nicholas Messina
