In memory of Aurelio Polci

I was fortunate enough to know Ralio for about four years. He was a Big Man. He was so big that I remember the first day I met him I was afraid he was going to fall on me. With Ralio is wasn't only his physical size that made him a Big Man. It was his aura, his energy and just his presence that made him "Immense."

To many of us gathered here tonight he was friend, a father, a husband and a runner. He went for his last run on January 16th, 1999. He took his last couple strides on the Boston Marathon course while training on the famous Com Ave. hills in Newton.

Tonight in East Somerville we run, eat and drink in honor of his memory and we still feel his presence.
