Memories Timeline


  1. To my dad , my adviser, my strength and who loved me as I loved him. The last several years we spent together taught me love, grace and oh how I cherished you . Go in peace with your family before you. love you forever……

    • Dearest Dorothy,
      Thank you for all the support and love and devotion that you showed and gave to your father in his time of need. He told me on many occasions that you were his angel. and didn’t know how he could live without you. He knew you loved him. He felt your love each day.

      Thank you for being a kind and loving person.
      Aunt Juliette

  2. candleMy big brother Nicky was wonderful to me. He played a big part in my life. He was fourteen years older, and I looked up to him. He was older yes, yet he loved to have fun with me and my younger brother Ricky. Nick would joke around. He had an excellent sense of humor. His laugher and smile could fill a room. Growing up and throughout his lifetime he had many friends. He was a family man. He loved his children and grandchildren very much.
    I know he was hardworking and a good family man.
    Nicky enjoyed owning beautiful cars, had a fine home and a prosperous business that he started from scratch. He was a self-made man.
    He had the talent to fix anything and everything. He was a great mechanic and businessman.

    My brother showed how much he cared. When my husband was sick and after my husband’s death, he called me every day to see if I needed anything or just to say hello. I will never forget that or him. My hope is for my brother Niky to rest in peace and be joined with all the family members that love him so very much.
    I will forever love and miss you. Your loving sister, Juliette

  3. My brother, my friend, even thou we were separated on upon the death of our mother when we were very young children over the years, we grow closer. to each other. I remember Riding with Nicky in his first bread truck. While I was sitting on a milk crate and bagging all the loaves of Italian bread for your next delivery stop. This was my payment for brother taking me to work each morning.

    Upon receiving my driver’s license, he surprised me by handing me the keys to your brand new 1956 Ford car to drive myself to work. He said I guess I’ll bag my own bread today. I remember that I had to be home with the car by 9 PM.

    I was blessed on Tuesday because I had the chance to say good bye and that Mommy and Daddy were waiting for you with open arms.

    Your loving sister Terry

  4. candleMy Uncle Nick was a wonderful person. I will always remember his warm smile and quiet class. My Uncle worked hard his entire life, and was a successful person, but never acted like he was better than anyone else. He was humble and kind and always looked out for my Mom, his sister. He was a great role model and was loved my his family. May God rest his soul in peaceful reunion with my Grandpa.

  5. Uncle Nick was the greatest. We all looked up to him, and admired him. He was always the center of calm for all of our fun get togethera. He always did a great job putting together our family reunions. His awesomeness spreads through my terrific Cousins: Nick, Danny, Kathleen and Dorothy.

    God bless you

  6. My Uncle Nick will be dearly missed. He walked me down the aisle on my wedding day in place of my late Father. It was a great honor to have him by my side on the most important day of my life. He was a wonderful brother to my Mom and her siblings and a loyal son to my Grandpa Rocco. He had an infectious laugh and a sharp wit. He had so many funny stories that made all family gatherings joyful. I will miss the twinkle in his eye when he was teasing someone in our family and his warm hospitality. Hod bless you, Uncle Nick

  7. Thank you for your love and kindness that you gave to my Mom over the course of her life. May you rest in peace Uncle Nick.
