Angelo Uberti was a good man! The most striking thing about Angelo Uberti was his handshake. When you shook his hand you could feel his grip on your hand and you knew that the handshake was genuine. He firm handshake was evident, even when he was battling that dreadful Parkinson's disease. Angelo was very helpful at our Post and he will be sorely missed.
