Dear Fiorello family, I was saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Fiorello. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of your family and your dad it is difficult to sort through them all. One of my favorites is when Mr. Fiorello would squirt us with the garden hose when we rode our bikes down the alley. I''d be peddling along past your backyard and suddenly -splash- I''d get hit with a water volley. When I''d look back to see who got me, there would be Mr. Fiorello, "innocently" watering his tomato plants, head down with only the teeniest smirk on his face to give away his guilt. It got so I looked forward to these little "baths" and I would be disappointed when he occasionally forgot to do it. Another great thing about Mr. Fiorello was that although he had a house full of kids at home, he still made time for the other kids in the neighborhood. As my scoutmaster, I''ll never forget the funny/consoling words he had for me when my pine-wood derby car became the first in boy scout history to stall out before the finish line. He turned an embarrassment into a cool, fun moment and I''m forever thankful! Most of all, I''ll always remember how warm and loving the Fiorello home was. It was always a whirl of kids, activities, fun, and laughter. I must have eaten a thousand of Mrs. Fiorello''s cookies and I''ll never forget getting to pilot the wooden kiddie-car Mr. Fiorello somehow fashioned from plywood and a lawnmower engine. When I read Mr. Fiorello''s obituary, his incredibly full life reminded me why they refer to people of his age as the Greatest Generation. He lived a life full of accomplishment, honor, and love. I send along all my prayers and best wishes to Anne, Paul and the entire Fiorello family. Your dad''s strength and noble spirit shines through you all, and as long as you have each other, he will never really be gone. All the best, John Nichols Sioux Falls

Lora and Family, Your Dad was a special man! He was an Italian "firecracker!" I remember how he tended his lettuce and tomato and flower garden next to your garage and close to the fence, near the alley. Even with all you kids in and out of that back door, he still let Taffy have litter after litter of pups. I remember eating Congo bars at your house and am so glad Sally gave my Mom that recipe! I remember your Dad making Italian food and recall thinking how cool it was for a Dad to cook. And who could forget the acting Fiorello''s in "The House That Roared" or was it Mouse instead of house - along with the Barnett''s, Lalley''s and good ol Fr. Mac.and many others on the stage of Cathedrals gym?! I remember how proud he looked when Lora walked down that isle to Marty. Your Dad put on quite an Italian wedding! Another Northender who will be missed! You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Marcy Wilson Perzanowski
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

A life has caught, and will not forget A fine collector, beautiful spirit Out of all the things he loved the most, His family stayed within his heart and his ghost. Maybe all the love was just to much? I wounder what he could be thinking of? Sunshine that triumphed grey, Golden skies in pouring rain? His life lead to happy grace, At least we know he''s in a better place. I loved his suspenders, His plaid, flannel shirts, I smile at mended memorys, With tears swelling up in my eyes. I imagine him wearing a brand-new hand-made robe, With elaborate buttons in the front, He''s wearing white pants with golden suspenders, Of course his button is undone. He isn''t gone to me, He''s only going asleep, but when I think of him, I''m trying not to weep. Although I can''t help crying, More than anything in the world, I would trade a possetion or friend, Just to hear his voice on my head again. By: Shannon Hubley

Who could have asked for a better man to be a kid''s uncle? My uncle Louie, the WWII Marine, the RR man and the head of a big "Italian-American" family. As a kid, and from nearly 2,000 miles away, I was intrigued. Although, I did not get to meet him until I was 17, I always knew I was going to like him. My mom often spoke of her kid brother with great love and affection. And, over the next 25+ years, I eventually discovered why. He was funny and cool, a perfect blend. He had the gift with music and he told the best stories. I loved listening to those stories, like back in the 20''s when he was a kid, the time he "snuck" into the cellar and absconded with his mama''s homemade sausages curing on the clothesline. Or, his amphibious wartime adventures in the exotic South Seas island of New Caledonia. And, then occasionally, his sedate musings of The Milwaukee Road. He always made me laugh and smile! In all ways, he was to me a successful man with a wonderful wife and family, who was a good role model to us all. My grandpa Joe would have been proud of his youngest boy! Uncle Louie had character and was a true American spirit! I will never forget him. Louie, God Bless You & Lots of Love to you. Your Niece, Patti

To all my special, special Fiorello family -- I''m so sorry about your Dad -- and wish I could be there to hug you all and laugh and cry with you. Although I love living in Phoenix, I''m saddened that I can''t be closer to you all now. I''ve spoken with your Mom and Dad a few times since I''ve been here. They''ve both always made me feel so loved -- even when I felt unloveable. So - - as I was driving to work today, all I could think about were the many Thanksgivings we spent with you in Sioux Falls. Enjoying Uncle Louie''s "day before Thanksgiving" stuffed manicotti. Sleeping 4 to a bed sideways because there were so many of us. And laughing and laughing and laughing. Please know that although I can''t be there with you, you''re always in my heart and in my prayers. Love, Teresa 25248 N. 41st Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85083 (623) 687-6011.
