Our deepest condolences to Aunt Shirley and all of the Caniglia family. I remember my Dad, Sam, taking us over to Uncle Corky's house in Omaha to play with Tommy, Tammy, Annette and Dominick when we were all little. I loved seeing everyone at Grandpa and Grandma's house for holidays and the cabin during the summer. As everyone grew up and moved away, we don't see each other as much as we did back then. I miss seeing everyone in person, even though social media helps us all keep in touch. I will never forget you, Uncle Corky. Please give my love to Grandpa, Grandma and Tammy. Fly with the angels. Love and hugs.
