to Tom's family -
nothing compares to the tons of fun we had working at the St. Bart's Bingo - Tom , or "Tomas", as I would call him, ) and I would clean up at the Bingo, and we would work hard and have fun.... One time he was cleaning the ladies bathroom and one of the toilet seats was broken in half - and he said "that's for half ass people"!!.. so funny ... and he used to live across from "the foot" and he would drive me home from the bingo sometimes - a really good person!
Also - he used to drive, I believe, a Chrysler Cordoba with RI plates BG- some numbers,,,, and we would call him "Big Guy" !..
so sorry about Josephine (who shared the same name as my mother, Josephine DeRotto - she passed Oct. 8, 2015), I miss her as well - lots of fun at the Bingo and the Feast....my dad, Sam passed August 12, 2017....
Take care everyone - I miss all of the fun and nice times we shared at St. Bart's and in Silver Lake....

My dad, Blaise would sometimes talk about the fun times he had with your Dad, and that your dad was his best man at his wedding. I remember your mom and dad at my parents 50th anniversary. It was so nice to see them all together again. My parents and the rest of my family want to extend our condolences to Toni, Paula, and Tommy and family on your heartfelt loss. May he rest in peace.

33 years I got to call you my grandfather, my lovable, gentle teddy bear. I’m heartbroken that you have been taken, but I will forever be grateful for the time we’ve had together and all the memories I have with you.
Family dinners were always a hoot lol we were a loud family, trying to talk wasn’t always easy as someone would always talk over us lol (I won’t mention any names). The tapping on the glasses with your silverware just to annoy gram was always a good laugh. Making your teeth fall out on purpose, knowing you were going to be called some name lol. There are so many more memories I could share, I just don’t have enough room.
Please watch over the family, and keep everyone strong. I know your up there with the love of your life and that makes my broken heart happy. Give gram a kiss for me 😘💔 I love you more than words! Until we meet again

May you rest and your family be at peace.. The last few months I spent taking care of you, you always had a smile on your face whether a good day or bad. Always brought laughter to my nights as it was a pleasure to take care of you. You have a great family and wish your daughters happiness as you rise above and spend eternity with God. God bless the dibiasio family. Xoxo

We had so many good memories but one of my favorites was when as a little girl I used to fall asleep on your lap watching tv. You would carry me to hed and tuck me in❤️.
We had so many good times and laughs throughout our life together. Your silliness was one of your best traits, and Jared and Jason loved that about you.
We spent a lot of time together these past couple of years. You had a tough time this year, and you were tired from the pain and now you are up in heaven with Nana and Mommy and everyone who has gone before you. Please watch over us and give Mom a hug and kiss from me. PS: I hope she’s not driving you crazy 😉
I will miss you so much💔 Until we meet again. I love you.
Toni Ann ❤️
