To my Godfather: who treated me as one of his own throughout childhood, who was there for my baptism, confirmation and wedding as an honored member of our family; and while we seldom saw or spoke in many years as life and career pulled me further from home, you have always been fondly remembered as my "Uncle" Tony. God Bless you and watch over you. Your Godson, Mark Mancini
