To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Gagliardi Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
The Guide Dog Foundation was founded after World War II to provide guide dogs and training at no cost to veterans returning from the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific. With the aging of America’s veterans, and as servicemen and women return home from current conflicts, the Foundation recognized there would be a greater need for guide and specialized service dogs and thus created America’s VetDogs in 2003, which then became an independent 501(c)3 organization in 2006, while still sharing staff and resources to meet their shared mission of helping disabled veterans returned from war.
The service dog programs of America’s VetDogs® were created to provide enhanced mobility and renewed independence to veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance. Not only does a service dog provide support with daily activities, it provides the motivation to tackle new challenges.

In 1917, a young Irish priest named Father Edward Flanagan grew discouraged in his work with homeless men in Omaha, Nebraska. He shifted his attention and rented a boarding house that became Father Flanagan’s Home for Boys. Flanagan welcomed all boys, regardless of their race or religion and by the spring, 100 boys were living at the Home. Since that time, Boys Town has continued to expand in its dedication to providing compassionate treatment for the behavioral, emotional and physical problems of children and families. Its programs include: The Family Home where children live in homes and are cared for by married couples known as Family-Teachers®; The Boys Town National Research Hospital® is a nationally-recognized treatment center for children with hearing and speech disorders and helps 60,000 deaf and hard-of-hearing students each year; and the National Hotline which has handled more than 8 million calls since its inception.
Each year, Boys Town impacts the lives of over two million people and strives to fulfill its mission to help every child and family to thrive, regardless of background and circumstances.
