    Uncle Trap (Chrome Dome) you will surely be missed. I will never forget the Italian words you taught me, just why did Mom yell at me when I said them!!! We had great times at the cabin and our canoe trips. My time I lived with you and Aunt Maryellen was awesome. Give my love to Aunt Maryellen and Dad. Miss you much I’ll never forget,
    “you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken s**t”…all our prayers
    Carol Ann, Erik, Cassidy and Gavin

    Uncle Trap (Chrome Dome) we will truly miss all those times at the cabin that we tormented you. The canoe trips, the pool, the occupied bathroom in the cabin and the BEARS in the woods. Carol Ann is right you taught us many italian words that got us in trouble but we all still remember them. Say hello to my Aunt Mary Ellen and Dad. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Love, Kathleen, Tom, Tommy, Colleen, Casey and Andy Bill.
