    I have been waiting for this tribute for months now…my talented daughter , Tracy, was the sole make up artist for this tribute…what a thrill for her doing it and what a thrill for her mother to see her talents in action. To be aired December 22, 2013 on HBO AT 8:30 PM EST.

    I was heart broken for James and his family. Which HBO channel will the tribute be on? With loving wishes.

  3. Mark Isenberg says:

    HBO has done a full reairing of Sopranos episodes over the summer into the fall and has again begun the series on one of its channels. Mr.Gandolfini was such a good man as well as a good actor that this tribute is only going to skim his career arc and the iconic role in this series. I hope some of you who did not see Enough Said will rent it or catch it on cable later because it showed the other side of his range which is what most of his friends saw,a very humble,loyal,sweet generous friend and Jersey guy.
