Hey Bud it has been a year tomorrow that you left us and the days, weeks, and months haven't been any easier. I keep waiting to hear your famous greeting "hey cuz" when we spoke on the phone. It hurts so much not having you around to endear us with your presence. However I do know you're here with us watching over everyone as we continue to try and move on. I know you must be giving my mom a rough time (all good) just to get her spun up. I know she loved that most about you which was having the ability to make her smile and laugh. Continue to rest in peace knowing your mom, Kitty, Hayley, and everyone else that loved you so much are doing okay. I miss the times we had especially growing up and it hurts knowing we will never be able to re-live those memories anymore. I love you Buddy.

Hi Buddy,

We have missed you so much in the past year, but please say Hello to my Dear Dad. I know you must be playing dice up there and showing your smirky smiles. It hurts so much that you are both gone but comforting to know you two are again having fun like old times. Love you forever.

I was in Rusk NYU Rehab with Buddy in the summer of 1984. We became friends, helping each other adjust to our new lives in wheelchairs. I have been looking for Buddy for years & years... I never got a chance to tell him it DID get better... I kept the hope alive & I'm doing ok 30 years later... I wish I could say the same for him. Rest well old friend... Till we meet again.

Buddy- I sit home thinking of the times we had both growing up and as adults. You were always there for me having my back as they say. From clamming on the Great South Bay while growing up to attending a Tampa Lightening game where you drove you Van. We didn't have a care in the world. But that didn't stop you for caring for others from your family to friends to ordinary strangers that you crossed paths with, you always made sure things were right. You held the torch of light protecting your family and taking care of them, most importantly your beautiful daughter Hayley. We were not only cousins but brothers in arms and it is why I say now rest in peace. We have it from here on out, we'll hold the torch of light in protecting and taking care of Hayley. She is a beautiful little girl who deeply loves her daddy and while holding the torch we will make sure she never forgets the time you had together. I love you Buddy and we will see each other again in the next life.

Although I haven't seen you in so many years, I have many fun memories of the many, many times we all hung out together. I remember clamming with your dad and the times we played Jarts on the front lawn on 5th Streeet, all the leaves we all raked together, the dinners we all shared with all of our cousins, aunts, uncles and siblings. We had lots of fun! There is so much more that I would like to say, so many more memories that I will take with me always. Please know that I was always so proud of you. Love, your cousin, Denise
