This Information From Anita Firmani Rozzi

     Unfortunately, I have sad news.  I was notified that Bobby Firmani passed away today.  Bob has been very ill for some time, and has been in a wheelchair for the past four years. I am very sad and sorry about his passing.
     I just finished talking with his wife, Marge.  She said that Bob had congestive heart failure about 2 weeks ago and then suffered from another massive stroke.  Needless to say, he became progressively worse over the last few days.
     He was able to receive communion and was blessed by a priest before he passed away.  He was always proud that he was Catholic and always bragged that he had attended St. Vincent School and had been blessed with wonderful classmates.  Bob had a heart of gold and always loved all of his family and old friends.  He would call me often just to catch up on the latest news about everyone.  Bob was a very giving person.  He always worried about everyone, and was never a selfish person.  He cared deeply for many people.  He suffered here on earth for the last four years, so I know that he is in heaven at this time and finally at peace.  I will miss him.
     His wife, Marge, and their son Mark and his family all live in North Carolina.
