He portrayed an EVIL mobster on television, that did VILE things to people. Yet, he was a family man that was lovable. He was after all---HUMAN---just like us. The fictional character was Tony Soprano. The real life person was James Gandolfini. Today, his family and friends will say goodbye to him. RIP Jim.
