The question gets often asked of me. How can you and your brother get along so well? The answer is simple really, when it comes to video games you’re never be without a player two. To put it in terms you understand Angelo is the Mario to my Luigi but then he change the game plan because he got himself a Princess Peach.
At age 23 my brother and I both decided to part ways and go to separate schools. Angelo received an acceptance letter to attend Fanshawe College in London to study Police foundations. While I received a high letter of recommendation to attend Conestoga college to study journalism. The Robert and Ray Barone dream was becoming a reality.
We are cultured up and have our lives centered around two main ideals, food and a strong method of communication known as yelling or fussing. I stated earlier Italians love to make food. In fact we love to make enough food to feed an army. add 10 to 12 chairs depending on the company and multiply the portions of food depending on the mouths to feed. If my calculations are correct you have a table the size of 28 feet long. Which makes sense why Italians are always yelling at each other because there always yelling at each other to pass the food around the table. It’s time for Angelo and Jessie to start a relationship one that does not include yelling or fussing.
Would the parents of both bride and groom please stand. I have a few words for them to mark this occasion. The book of Mark chapter 10 verse 16: “behold I send you amongst the wolves as sheep be as harmless as doves but as wise as serpents. These two individuals have become one flesh in the sight of God and all of us it is written in the Scriptures that a man must leave his mother and father and hold fast to his wife. As the bride and groom both rise I would like to kindly remind them of my definition of love isn’t coming from worldly standpoint my definition of love is best found in the Scriptures in first Corinthians chapter 13.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
One of first ways that I could really see that my brother made the right choice in terms of marrying was witnessing the smile on both their faces. I had never seen that type joy and jubilation on the face of my brother before. That is when I knew their marriage was one that was going be long lasting.
Yes, certainly there are parallels that are similar to the Barone and the Sicilia brothers. but he’s got one up on me in the marriage department I guess the only thing I need to do now is get married, but that’s not even a priority right now. Time will tell what role I play in the future.
