My condolences to the Giardina family on the loss of your father. I am the oldest of the Walsh siblings that lived close by on North High Street. There were lots of Giardina’s, Walshes, and Bendigs in that neighborhood. I graduated with David. Take care everyone.

Love, Doug & Shannon Weaver and Family
sorry to hear mark. rip, god bless
God’s speed to Mickey’s family for your loss of a great guy who I remember well from
our days at the Bessemer & LE Railroad. He was a friendly, very fine man!
To ALL of the Giardina Family—-
We send our love and heartfelt condolences.
Surely Mickey is happier now that he is reunited with his beloved “Ang,” but for those left behind there is
an enormous void. We, too, shall miss his jokes and laughter, his enjoyment of family get-togethers, and his insistence that Father Knows Best. Usually.
Until we meet again, cousin! Joey & Emily
Dear Dave and family,
What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
Dan and Family, Our sincere sympathy in the loss of your Dad.
To the Giardina Family
We send our love and heartfelt condolences and prayers. Mickey was one of the nicest people Greenville has ever seen.
May he Rest In Peace and your hearts have comfort that he is in a better place with his beloved Angeline.
May God be with you Mickey . . .
Prayers and Condolences.
To Dan and family.
I can remember hauling a large dump truck full of cut stone to the”” new house” for completing the exterior of it. Real nice man and person. I got to know Dan for many years through our businesses. I remember going horseback riding one nice summer day with Dan and one of his boys when my dogs harvested several groundhogs along the ride . Bless PA PA and your whole family during this sad time.
Dan So sorry to hear of the passing of your father. we are in the south and just found out He will be in our prayers Mac and Mernee
To the entire Giardina family…I was a good friend of Marie many years ago and have thought of her many times over the years since her untimely passing. Now she’s with both of her parents again. Please accept my deepest sympathy to all of you.

My sincere sympathy to the Giardina families. Mickey was such a fine man. God Bless
