June 28, 2010 - 8:36 pm

Don Galante (grandpa) - When Henry Thomas was born, Toby came out to meet the family and said he had good news and bad news.
The good news is our new baby is fine, the bad news is he looks like Grandpa. Luz and I are so proud of Toby and Liz, and Henry Thomas. The news of his birth was communicated immediately to relatives & friends. in the United States, South America and Europe. Henry is already a hero and as of today I want to sign up as his “official agent” so ladies and sports teams the line forms at the right. This kid has it all.
