John Esposito my oldest cousin and my mother Josephine Emanuele’s (Esposito) favorite nephew. I remember my mother (who I miss everyday) telling me about how Johnny took care of his father (my mohter’s Brother Freddie) when he was ill and pass away in 1956 before I was even born. My mother loved both very much and I know Johnny adored her as well. I wish my cousin and I had spent more time together and I made sure I invited him and his family to all my family celebrations to keep our family together and in remembrance of my mom. Johnny, his father Freddie and my mom are back together in heaven I am sure reflecting on life’s pass and forever now with our Lord. I will always remember Johnny and hope he and my mom will continue to guide us through life’s journeys. All the love and condolence to Johnny’s family who I know will always miss him.

Lets all continue being a family and spent more time together in respect to my cousin Johnny’s legacy!

Joseph Emanuele and Family. ❤️

Kindred spirits. A term not to be used lightly. From the moment I met John I knew there was something special about him. Heaven is greatly blessed by your loss. Please know how deeply he touched the lives of those around him. He will be so deeply missed. They just don't make 'em like him anymore. God Bless You.

Dear Theresa & Children,

I loved being in You and John's Company any time anywhere. A great guy who made his company a pleasure to be with it. He worked hard and was always concerned for everyone friend or no friend. A wonderful wonderful guy has also reached heaven. I'm sorry I can't be there in person my heart still aches for my brother Sammy and I'm not ready to go back to Mack's. Please accept and forgive me for not seeing you now, but I won't forget to see you sometime in the near future. You will always be one of my best Hoboken friends from then till now. God Bless you and your family.
