Lou,

You were a great neighbor. I’ll miss seeing you coming in and out of your house and I’d yell across the street “hey Luigi”. I’ll also miss our conversations about how good or bad our NY Jets were doing or going to do. Sorry that we couldn’t discuss them winning one more championship before you passed. Rest easy my friend.

Your neighbor,
Mark Miranda

Poppy, you will truly be missed. I'll never forget you picking me up as a kid in the summer to take me painting with you. But first we would would always stop and meet up for breakfast with your gang of friends. I'll always remember you at my games, you in the stands watching and cheering me on. Me, Alex, Ava, and Aubrielle love you so much and your memory will live on forever. Tell Nana we love her and miss her. Until we see you again, rest easy.

Poppy,
I am so sad that your not here but I know that you are in a better place and with Momma now. You have always been a big part of my life and I have known you for almost all of it. I will never forget you driving me home and acting like we were going on a police call. You would hit the roof of your car and then the gas and we would fly down the road. I will always have a special place in my heart and I will always be your (Boobey).
I love you,
Amy

Dad I see the picture of you at the head of the table on Christmas Eve I sat to your left and Lou would sit to your right and the girls would be doing all the work as we got ready to crush some crabs . You were liked and loved by so many people . You will truly be missed by many. Tell mommy we said we love her too and we will all be together some day. We love you dad , father-in-law and poppy.
I love you forever,

Daddy Daddy Daddy My heart is heavy and crying many a tear, my head is in a fog. How do you sum up 54 years of a father and daughter relationship. Many adjectives; some not so pleasant. Many life lessons and memories. Its true what they say that children watch and learn from their parents. I will never forget when you taught me how to change a flat tire, how to crab and about sports. I am grateful and blessed to have had you as my father. Its been you and me for quite awhile now; I hope I did right by you. I had a feeling something was amiss when you kept saying 'You know I love you right' Thats a question that never needed to be asked because I never felt unloved by you. So Dad; there has been a outpouring of love and caring. Eventually the weight will be lifted the tears wiped away and the fog in my head will clear with all the love surrounding me. I just need to grab on and accept it. Dad when your soul reunites with Mom give her a big hug and kiss from me. I could go on and on so Thank You Dad For Everything Your at peace now. Much Love Always Your Daughter Donna

Oh Pop my heart hurts so bad right now. To know that you just tried on your suit for my wedding on Monday really breaks my heat 💔 It killed me to have to remove your name from the wedding seating chart and add you to the remembrance table 😢 I was so excited to share this special day with you. Would have been the first wedding of your grandkids that you would have come to. Promise me you and Nana will be watching from up above. I love you Pop and will miss you more and more each day. I will hold you in my heart until we meet again. Shine down on me everyday 💕
