Mr. Poletto was my patient briefly (2 visits) for checkups while I was working at VPCHC a couple years ago. His visits were memorable; one time he gave me a bottle of homebrew brandy that was delicious but strong! He had a happy personality and was a pleasure to get to know even if briefly. My condolences to Mrs. Poletto and his family.
