Welcome

In honor of our dearly beloved friend, Dr Sal Caputo, who passed away Sunday, August 6, 2017, I wrote this song and sang it at his funeral. I will have the recorded version up on my site as soon as is practical. Sal will always be in our minds and hearts.

 

The Gentle Giant

 

The Gentle Giant was a friend of mine

When he rode into town

All the people laughed and sang

When he was around

 

A selfless man he was for sure

Healing all who came

A loving father and husband too

He will always remain

 

He’s resting in a better place

With the good Lord by his side

We shed a tear and mourn for him

A never ending changing tide

 

The Gentle Giant was a friend of mine

When he rode into town

All the people laughed and sang

When he was around

 

-He’s around

 

-He’ll always be around…

    Uncle Dennis' Turkey Bolognese Sauce was a HUGE hit last night! When she asked for the recipe, I directed Mary Lou to this site. Note: I put in approx. 1/2 tsp fennel seed, which only added to the flavor. This was a real crowd pleaser! Thanks Uncle Dennis!!
