    Any man that can raise “good guys” like Mike and Joe Napolitano Jr. must have been an amazing person. I did not know Joseph Napolitano but I have gotten to know two of his sons and grandsons. Our thoughts and prayers go out to my friends Joe and Mike – and to the entire Napolitano family.

Send your condolences.
