Condolences to the DiVico family. RIP cousin Johnny. Grandma Mary was my Godmother and I loved her so much. I used to come and stay at the DiVico home in St. Clair Shores and hang out with Denny and his friends. I can still hear Aunt Mary yelling from the second floor down to Denny and his friends "Dennis are you smoking down there?!" Always had a good time when I was there.
