I had a science project in the 5th grade to demonstrate how a heavy steel ship was able to float in the ocean. I asked Uncle John since he served on several Naval ships.

The answer was to get a pan of water then blow up a balloon and tie the end. The balloon floated on top of the water and when pushed down it would displace some water but still floated. This simple demonstration did the trick and I got a good grade.

Please accept our sincerest condolences at this very sad time. Uncle John was a wonderful man and we will have fond memories of him even though he is no longer with us. -Frank & Judie

My dearest Ciccone family, it’s so difficult to find adequate words to express my condolences for the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. Mr. Ciccone was a true patriarch; I have so much love and respect for him. This world has lost a great man and we mourn, but find comfort knowing he is with his Lord and Savior and was welcomed into Paradise with the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
