I have fond memories of Uncle Túlio starting in the fifties visiting Belaire and his visits to Buffalo and Hamilton.
Remember him gifting me a Johnny Tremaine toy set.
Dearest Jeannie we were deeply saddened to read of you loss. Tullio was always trying to get me to harvest my grapes for his wine making. I never succeeded. You and your family are in our prayers.

Charlotte, I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family for comfort.
I am very sorry to hear of your loss mj and family. My thoughts are with all of you. Mr. Ciancone was a good man.
Charlotte & family- so sorry for your loss. May he be at peace. I always loved his wine and getting to talk to him at Lenscrafters. ❤️
We were invited to spend last Christmas with some of Tullio’s family and had the privilege of meeting Tullio for the first time. He was a beautiful man. We feel so lucky for that experience and know those memories will be with us forever. At this time of sorrow, may you find comfort in your memories. Sent with our deepest sympathy, Joel and Pamela Claudius.
