Dear DiPirro Family,

Donald, Dennis and Duane were all friends of mine. Our Mother's were best friends. Duane I think you will remember "Auntie Emily" Caputa. Dennis was always a great guy. He was my first crush. Our sympathy goes to the family.

I was a Fallon classmate. He was always good for a laugh no matter what the weather. Once a Fallon Flyer always a Fallon flyer.

Dad had plane tickets to head back to the reunion at the end of October but he got sick and we had to cancel the flights. I am heading back around Christmas. I would love to get together and you can tell me all about Dad in high school. My email is Hope everyone is well and I know the service tomorrow will be extremely difficult for me but I know in my heart that Dad is in a better place and he's probably looking for John Wayne in heaven after he finds mom.

My sincere condolences to the family. I attended both St. James grammar school and Bishop Fallon High School (the source of this "senior picture")with Denny. Despite the fact that I hadn't seen him in over 50 years, I still remember him well. We lived a few blocks apart,walked to grade school together, and frequently rode the bus to high school together. He had a great sense of humor and was simply a really good guy. I had hoped to see him at our 50 year reunion in 2011, but was unuccessful in my attempts to locate him. I will keep him in my prayers.
