(Newser) – Amid all the tributes to the late James Gandolfini, a New Jersey ice cream parlor came up with one of the most fitting. The owner of Holsten's in Bloomfield put up a "reserved" sign at the booth where the final scene of The Sopranos was shot, reports the New York Post. “During his down time, he’d be outside smoking a big cigar, talking to people," recalls Chris Carley. "He seemed like a real regular guy." To read about how Gandolfini changed television, see Jessica Winter's appreciation at Slate.

The best tributes are ones people think to express while you are still alive. There is no telling what benefit that might bestow on a person's life.
