Our hearts ache for Susan and her family. We've kept in touch with Susan and ‘AC' every year, after we met on a cruise so many years ago. We will cherish those memories forever. Blessings, Leland and Janet Mansuetti, 'cruise buddies.'

I have so many great memories! Growing up together as cousins we had so much fun! AC was so funny in a way that kept us in stitches.
I cherish the year I rode to St. Plus with him and his dad. Great conversations and laughs to and from school.
As we grew up life happens and we didn’t see each other as often but it was always as if we were never apart when we’re would see one another.
When he met Susan and told me her , I knew she was the one ♥️
Susan, AC, Andy and family , you’re in Michael and I thoughts and prayers.
I can invision AC being greeted by his mama and daddy and all the others in their heavenly home. I’m sure he’s keeping all of them laughing. All my love to y’all. God Bless and comfort each of you✝️

Out thoughts and prayers go to the entire Collette family.
Whenever I think back of A.C. in high school, I remember laughing at his stories, he always had a story to tell. The other memory is his dancing at school sock hops, oh my gosh could A.C. dance!!!
Susan, (Little) A.C., Andy, Katy, I hope you find comfort in all the wonderful memories we all have regarding A.C. and knowing now, he is no longer in pain or suffering. May the peace of the Risen Christ surround you all during this very difficult time.

Dear Susan and Family,

I’m so very sad to hear about “A.C.”

We ALWAYS had FUN together at school and when he visited Mary and I was there.

All of my memories of “AC” bring a smile to my face.

“AC” was truly one of a kind. Always Happy, Smiling, Fun to be around and loved his Italian Heritage.

He was Very Special and will ALWAYS be in my Heart.

My prayers and thoughts are with You All.

Love,
Johnnye Faye

It has been an honor to be a member of your family and to see your selfless and dedicated love to those around you. You have always been a truly genuine and generous man who could make everyone smile. The pride that you had for your wife, children and grandchildren was limitless and was inspirational to witness. Thank you for loving me.
Thank you to Mrs. Collette, AC, Andy and the rest of the family for sharing him with us. I will be forever grateful.
Love to everyone

Hey Daddy, I don’t know where to start. There are no words to describe what you mean to me. The stories, the memories and life lessons will never be forgotten. You are the reason I am the man that I am yet I still wish I was a fraction of the man that you are. You taught me how to be a good father and one day I hope to be a good Paw Paw like you have been for the kids. Please continue to watch over us (Steelers and Astros included) and remember you have been and always will be my Superman. Love you, Daddy.

We love you so much! We had so many joyful and happy memories with you, like watching TV shows such as Wipeout, Highway Patrol, The Abbot and Costello Show, etc. Also, sharing candy and sitting next to you on the arm of your recliner. Thank you for always loving us and for all the great times we had together. We will forever cherish and pass down these memories and will love you forever.

Prayers and love to you during your time of loss. Remembering AC coming over to visit his Uncle Joe and Aunt Jean and cousins as I was growing up . He was always joking and telling funny stories and making us laugh. His visits gave our family such joy..
