Dear Manny, Our most heartfelt condolences to your beautiful wife, Diane, and all of your family who love you without measure. From the first moment we met I knew you were truly special - warm, caring and sincere. You were taken way too soon. Sadly this was God’s plan. Circumstances prevented us from paying our respects today but you and your family are on our minds and in our hearts. You will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace! May your memory be eternal!

It's been some years, but I vividly remember Manny's smile and his laugh, his gracious demeanor and how he loved his work. I remember his many words of encouragement as I was starting out at the station...but most of all, I remember his love of family...his beloved Diane and children. There was probably not one conversation we had where they were not mentioned. It seems like Manny lived and loved fully all the days of his life. He was truly one of a kind and will be missed. My condolences and love to Diane and family. I will have you in my prayers.

Manny we are going to miss you truly very much and you are deeply in our hearts. You always had the greatest attitude towards life and lived it to the fullest with no regrets,I can certainly say this by experiencing great spirit that you always had on the tennis courts when playing with us. Never gave up and always held your chin up with pride,very few can be like you. You are the most hard working most ethical person that I have met. I know how much you loved your family. It must be most difficult times for them,but you have lived and showed them how to be strong and to carry on.We are unfortunate to lose you and by any means we can bring you back we will do it with anything and everything possible. God is very greedy and he wants your company and cherish more than we did. Always will be remembered as we walk on those BCP tennis courts every single time.You have been loved by everyone and will be continued to.

There are no words to express what a tremendous loss this is to our family. I was his first born niece and for as long as I can remember he always showed me much love and support, listened, gave advice and told me how proud he was of me. He was a one of a kind man with a big heart. ALWAYS told me he loved me after every conversation. RIP Theo Mano. Your mom and dad are celebrating your arrival in the heavens. You left a wonderful stamp on this earth and we are all very grateful that you were a part of our lives. We love you and will miss you deeply.

You will be greatly missed, take care of our mom and guide us all from above! Love you always❤️💙😘😘🙏🙏
Mari Primario left a message on May 15, 2023:
What can I say about Emanuel "Manny" Parais,. I wish I had a picture of me and him but as people who knew me when I was in news, I was chained to the desk and didn't have those luxuries. Manny was a stand up guy, as they say in Bklyn, a man with a good heart and a true professional to his craft. He was always available for advise and a kind word when you needed it and did so with me as well as Im sure some of my ex Co workers who also fell in that category. He will be greatly missed. I hope his family knows what a class act he was and I doubt there will be another like him. I know he will continue to shine in heaven doing what he loved.May he rest in peace. A big loss for NY TV news.

Dear Diane and children words are no enough to describe the impact and the indelible mark our beloved Manny has left in this world. It was a privilege to know him and work with him; and through his stories to get to know his love for his family and see how proud he was about all of you. I’ll forever cherish our conversations while in route to an assignment, his solidarity, professionalism and commitment to excel in everything he did, but most importantly, what an extraordinary human being he was. He’ll live in our hearts. God bless his soul-and May his memory be a Blessing. Ivana and I are grateful to have had Manny in our lives. Fuerte el abrazo hasta el cielo Manny!

My deepest condolences to a beautiful family. Manoli was such a great man and I always enjoyed talking to him at Church or wherever we saw each other. It is unbelievable to me that he left this life so early. The only thing I can think of is that God wanted Manoli close to him sooner rather than later. We will miss you Manoli, rest in peace my friend, and we’ll certainly see you again in the afterlife. May God bless you and keep you close to him for all eternity.
