I first met Greame over a decade ago,. He was and had been a very intelligent and understanding individual who had the foresight on how to create a winner with Ossorio Cafe in Cocoa, Florida. I admired his ambition on how to make business work and be successful at it. We will miss his kindness and laughter. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family in this sad time.

My condolences to the Ossorio family I attended Fairfield University with Graeme, and have been living in Naples for the past 14 years. I wish I had known that Graeme was also a resident.
I will keep him in my prayers
