To Diane and all members of the Slesinski family. Diane and I would like to send our condolences at the passing of our cousin Jackie. I have many fond memories of the late 50's when the families would visit each other.

One special memory I have is of a visit to Connecticut. Jackie had that convertible of his. He wanted to take us for a ride, so my sister Lois sat up front with Jackie and I sat in the back with Janice. He drove us all the way to downtown Manhattan. When we got there he put the top down and drove us through Times Square. What a fun day that was.

He will be greatly missed. We are very sorry for your loss.

Bob & Diane Puricelli
