Sitting around the kitchen table on sundays just talking and telling stories….
Going to Vegas won’t ever be the same. There are only two times in my life that I have been to Vegas without my uncle Lenny….
I know that Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Izzy as well as other family and friends welcomed you to heaven with open arms!
Give everyone a hug and kiss for me!
Love you uncle!
There will never be any words spoken, written or imagined as too how much MY DAD MEANT TO ME…
His Journey’s Just Begun…..
Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

We were never fortunate enough to meet Mr. Sorce but we are good friends with his son Lenny. I can only imagine what a special man he was to have raised such an amazing son. Our deepest condolences to your family during this time. Sending all our love and prayers, God Bless.

Lenny and I met in the Army in 1957. The friendship we started there continued when we returned home and has never lapsed. We have been together many times over the years for special occasions involving birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings. We’ve watched each others children grow up, move away, and start their own families. For 50 years we shared a phone call every Christmas Eve. I’m going to miss that phone call but remember all the good times we shared over the years. I will miss you my friend.

I have memories of Lenny from as far back as grade school. I remember the family coming from Milwaukee to visit us in St. Charles and meeting his children for the first time. Lenny hugged me like he was my dad and always treated me like a daughter. The family made the trip again for my wedding in 1986. It was so special to have them there and see their smiling faces as I walked down the aisle. Their presence was truly a gift that day.
We’ve exchanged Christmas cards over the years and kept in touch despite the miles between us. When we adopted our daughter in May of 2000, Lenny and Cynthia became a part of her life too. They got to see her in person when we made the trip to Milwaukee for Lynette’s wedding. They couldn’t have been more proud of her if she were their own. I have a picture from Lynette’s wedding reception of Lenny and Sara dancing. Both of them have smiles on their faces and the joy they shared in that moment is priceless. This was the first wedding Sara had attended and Lenny made her feel like Cinderella at the ball.
I will always remember the way Lenny took care of us whenever we were with him. It was usually a battle of wills between Lenny and my dad over who was going to pay for things. I think Lenny usually won these battles. I will never forget the kind and generous man that Lenny was. He always had a smile on his face and love in his heart. We may have lost a wonderful man, but heaven sure gained a great one.
Dear Cynthia and Peter
Dear Cynthia and Peter, So sorry to see Lenny’s notice in the paper. Although we lost contact in the past he was always so kind and helpful to me at Bargain and Hometown. God bless you. Tom Galati
