14: To My Grandfather, Today we celebrate your 80th birthday but most importantly we celebrate you. There is so much that I have learned from you that I can only hope I will pass on to my children. I always remember our weekly visits to the Dairy Queen and you teaching me how to swim. Most of all you taught me that family comes first and to always love each other no matter what. Today, tomorrow and always.. I love you. Your granddaughter, Michele | Michele Lynn Triano March 30th, 1978
15: Grandpa , What can I say.. you are such a wonderful caring person who has a heart of gold. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood are of you teaching me how to swim and always bringing home cookies. I remember you being such a handy man and always tinkering with something in the garage on Avenue D. You would do anything to make us happy. You were liked by everyone and still are. Your a man of few words but I can tell by the look in your eye and the smile on your face, how caring of a person you are. Even though we don't see each other that often it brightens my day every time I do get to see you. I'm proud to have you as my grandfather and love you more than words can say. Love always.. your Grandson, Nick | Nicholas Michael Triano July 8th, 1980
