    Dear Mr. Scarano, (Dad) I remember you & Shauna (6 yrs. old) playing "school" together. She was the "teacher" & you were her "student". Shauna had you coloring, reading, & counting. You were SO funny. You asked: "Is it nap time yet?" I just wish there were more "happy" memories like this made.... You have such wonderful "kids"- Joe, (of course!) my husband- a TRUE family man. Dave, a funny, dedicated WORK man. Vince, a truly SINCERE & COMPASSIONATE man. Chris, a very STRONG-minded, bold young lady. Not only does she try to keep the family TOGETHER, but has taken on the responsibility of caring for Dave (your son with Special Needs). From what I understand, you were a Machine Shop teacher and a VERY GOOD one at that! You held 3 jobs and often NOT around. However, Joe tells me of having a great childhood; hunting & fishing with his cousins & Uncles (who taught him) . Joe often makes fun of me being a "city" girl and missing out on the country life. There are many regrets & the biggest one is of you moving to N.C. and leaving your YOUNG family behind. It's OK to start a NEW family...Life happens... But it is NEVER ok to leave your "NATURAL" family, your OWN FLESH & BLOOD. You missed out on so many experiences. .. To name a few: your children's weddings, the births of your grandchildren: Dominic, Shauna, & Michael- 3 AWESOME young adults now! As I see it, Frances wanted to RULE your world, and you ALLOWED it. But NO ONE (not even Frances) can take away the fact that Joe, Dave, Vince, and Chris are YOUR 4 biological children... children of GOD ... children you created... So will I ever forgive you for not PROTECTING your "OWN"??? No, probably not...But I will say one thing .For all the sadness & disappointments you caused Joe, Dave , Vince, and Chris, it is truly AMAZING how much LOVE they have and will ALWAYS have for you.....GREAT JOB and kudos to "FAITH".... May you REST in peace....May Joe ,Dave,Vince, and Chris LIVE in peace...
