His passing is sad on so many levels, his poor son, his infant who will never know him, so many people who counted themselves among his friends, and the fact that he was only 51. Sad.

My brother was a huge Sopranos fan growing up, He's going to the funeral on Thrusday (I believe fans are allowed to go to the funeral) May He Rest In Peace.
