We are sad to report yet another death. Leucio "Macrine" Del Vecchio passed away early yesterday morning. He was 99 years old. We all thought he would reach the magic 100. His death follows the death of Maria Antonia "Palmira" Dev Vecchio-Palozzi on April 7 and Leucio was Maria's uncle.
We wish to express our sincere condolences to each and every member of the immediate families.
