One Condolence for Francesco “Franco” Bufo
I visited Mr. Bufo at least once a week at Newcastle health, even if just for a quick hello! I don’t know how well we understood each other but he always gave me a smile that lit up his whole face. I pray he’s at peace and maybe making pizza for the angels! I will miss his smile. Prayers to the Bufo family in this difficult time.
