Dear Uncle Nick - I’m sorry that we were not able to see you before while we were passing through Florida, but wanted to express to you my love and thank you for the wonderful memories of you and all that you represent. My earliest memories as a child are when we lived in Jamaica upstairs from grandma and grandpa, and you would visit and immediately swing me from under your legs to over your head. I was probably about one, so that would put it at that 71 or 72 years ago! Your sense of humor has always been admirable. Those memories are endless, things like greeting me as “franjeesk – I don’t know how to spell it – or for a time with a song about how “Friendly Frank” should work at “Friendly Frost.” You were always there was a smile and a laugh, and I certainly enjoyed your sense of humor. And more importantly than that, I appreciate and admire your wisdom, optimism and your approach to and attitude about life. They could be a model for all of us.

All the best to you. Your loving nephew,

Frank (Vinnie’s son)

Dearest Uncle Nick: Always with a joke, a twinkle in your eye and a smile. We remember you with great love. We are still happily in the house you built for us in West Islip and where we were neighbors for a while. We take comfort knowing you are with your parents and brothers and sister. May you rest easy with the Saints and Angels in God's Holy presence.
Grace and Kenny
