Armando was my big Primo when I came to this country as a very young child. I always looked up to him for comfort and guidance. I always remember him for his calm demeanor, I never once did I ever see any trace of anger in my cousin. A kinder, gentler man I did not know. My thoughts, prayers, condolences to all those who loved him.
