Dear Millie and family, Our deepest sympathy to you. We had plenty of long, wonderful talks with Nick throughout the years. Sal and I were either going up to visit our parents or on the way out. Millie, many times you'd be waving to us looking out of the window. That's what I remember. I enjoyed talking to Nick and listening to him. He was always kind to us and happy to see us. It seems like a lifetime ago. You all are in our thoughts, prayers and hearts and we are so very sorry. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Sal and Toni Triscritti

Dear Aunt Millie and Family,
Our hearts and prayers are with all of you.
May knowing that a grand reunion is taking place in Heaven bring you some comfort.
You are surrounded by love from near and from those of us far away.
We have such fond memories of our get togethers and our Summer stay overs. Those always make me laugh and smile.
The love we’ve shared are the ties that bind us always.
Sending love and comforting hugs in this mist of sorrow,
Your loving niece Theresa and family

Dear Family

Oh how we remember when you would all come upstate with your mom and dad in the summer and sometimes around the holidays for some family get togetherness.
Your father with his infectious grin would make me laugh. We will see you again Uncle Nicky when we cross over Jordan. 🙏🏻

Uncle Nicky gave me many memories to remember him by, not an easy guy to forget. When I think of Uncle Nick I smile and laugh at his humor, his jokes and comments, all were border-line comical mixed with some sarcasm. His discipline would be like hey I'm serious and "don't tempt me to knock you out because I can you know" then he would say "but your mother and aunt would be mad at me so your lucky". How funny was that. So many great memories, mostly fun times, mixed with some sadness along the way. An uncle who I could talk to about anything and expect honest answers whether I liked the answer or not. He seemed to always be looking out for me and had my best interests in mind, more like a dad than an uncle. I think that is the character of a great person and a cool uncle. Those kinds of people are hard to find and when they move on in life's difficult journey, their memories will make you crack a smile and talk about the laughter they created. Uncle Nicky, IS a guy that will always be remembered.
