I will always remember my uncle’s laugh and his love for opera. I will always love and miss you. I wished my daughter had more memories with you.

Love always,

My brother "Jimmy" was one of a kind. Very funny, very kind, and always looked out for me. Although he was 15 years older than me and we didn't live in the same house very long (he went into the army when I was only 4 or 5), we were very close. We worked together during summers when I went to college and then for 3 straight years after i graduated and he took me under his wing and made me an assistant foreman on his job. he was a great opera singer and accordion player, loved his music (mario lanza, especially) and he loved his classic movies. I think he had a big part in my love for music and movies. He was as strong as they get and time after time defied the medical experts with his fight to overcome all his medical issues (and he had more than 10 times his share). I will remember him always with love and deep affection and will miss him dearly for the rest of my life. the memories are endless and quite comforting. Rest in peace until we meet again Jimmy and lets play some knock rummy again one day!! xoxo Your little brother Johnny

My brother Jimmy was the strongest person that I know.He suffered a great deal with dignity and grace.He was so talented,he was able to sing opera and he could tell a story in the most interesting way.When I was a very young child he taught me about the presidents, and he taught me all about music and movies.They say that when great souls come to be born that the greatest of souls choose a very challenging life,I believe that my brother was a great soul.He is now in Heaven with our parents.I will miss him for the rest of my life.I will love him forever.

I will always love and miss my uncle!! I fondly remember holidays when he would share and celebrate with us! :) I had a baby recently, whom I am sad my uncle didn't have a chance to meet, but I know he is up in heaven looking down at us all ♡.

I will love you forever ♡
