I found this picture of my daughter from way back in the late 90’s, the guys joked about this fire coat being Mario’s (john) so they dressed up my daughter and called Mario over. We laughed and He laughed,. He was a good firefighter and family man. Once again my condolences to the family.

You reached out to your U.k family, I thank you for putting a smile on our faces and travelling the distance to London, you met your siblings Debbie (my mum) and Anthony (Tony) (my uncle) as well as me, I’m glad you spent personal quality time with them both, my mum was like yourself, always wanting to know about the family history. We will never forget you ! Our prayers are with you and your loving family.

Mario and I worked at the same firehouse. He was a firefighter on truck 52 and I was lieutenant on engine 65. My sympathy goes out to the Boyle family for your loss. Lucas, I remember you hanging out at the firehouse with your dad at times! Cherish those memories.

Sorry for your loss

John and I met in 1976, and we became friends....We were both Vietnam Veterans so we shared a common bond....We visited the Vietnam Wall in 84, I stood up to his wedding in 89 and we went back to Vietnam for a trip in 2006...He was a good friend, funny and he was very helpful....John will be missed.

To my father-in-law,
You’ve always treated me as one of your own. My favorite memories of you will always be of us spending time together and you making everyone around you laugh. You were the life of the party and everyone’s friend. You raised the man of my dreams, and I’ll forever be so grateful for that. I promise to always take care of Luke and carry on your memory. Thank you for being such a great man. You’ll be so missed.

I dont know how Im going to carry on. I know you taught me to be strong, but my heart is in too many pieces. We had our moments. But I also know that we did everything out of love. You have been there..thru every success, every fail, every key moment in my life. You have given me a life so much better than I could ever have imagined. Please know, my life is good because of you. I know you will watch over all of us. I feel you in my heart and know you will still keep guiding me on the right path. Thank you for everything and I love you so so much.
-" I'm not going anywhere"
Love you forever and until I see you again one day...
Your daughter,

To my beloved husband
I just want to thank you for the life you have given me and our children. Our life together was cut too short. I will do my best to carry on like you would want me to do , but there will always be something missing. You're gone physically but always in my heart forever. You truly were a special man. Just know that your four-legged babies are missing you too.
I know you are resting in peace and waiting for us to be together again.
All my love,
Your wife.
