I thank the Lord for putting you in my path and being such an important part of my life. You helped raise me and you taught me to be a strong and responsible individual.

My dearest yiayia, You always knew how to lighten up a room, from your fashionable jewelry to your loving personality. No matter what occasion you always dressed so elegant. You expressed so much love and caring, always wanting to know everything going on in my life and always checking up and giving me advice. I will cherish the memories I have of you. You brought so much joy into my life. I am grateful we got to spend so much time together, you were around from when I was born to when I became a man. Even though you are gone, I know you will always be around with yiayia Marge watchin over all of us. Heaven gained another angel.

Stunning, elegant, caring, outgoing and loving....these are just some of the words that describe my Yiayia. Heres to all the memories we have created together and all the wonderful times we have shared. I will miss the little things like your sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving, when you and mom threw me an amazing bridal shower and when we drank way too many Pina Coladas at papou's birthday party. Even though you are no longer with us on earth, I know you will always be with us, walking besides us and watching over us. Thank you for always being a wonderful Yiayia. Heaven now has 2 amazing women. I know that you and Yiayia Marge are holding hands right now looking down at us. Thank you for always helping me, always encouraging me and always loving me. I love you.

I remember when I was a little boy walking to the bakery on the corner with you early in the morning and coming back and sitting around the table in your old house while we ate breakfast together as a family. Love and miss you always Yiayia- Petie moo I will never forget how much time you spent with me during my childhood. Some of the earliest (and best) memories I have are when you would take time to play board games with me, and when you and I would watch TV together before I went to bed. I will never forget those days and I will never forget how kind and how loving you were. Se agapó pára polý Yiayia...Chris.

I have such wonderful, warm memories of Mrs Fobbs. She was like a second mother to me, caring and kind. She gave me the support I didn't receive at home. I remember going out with the family on Christmas Eve to get a tree. We once went to the Whitestone Drive-In and we all fell asleep and woke up and the car was all fogged over. She never made me feel like a guest in her home, but a part of the family. My deepest condolences to the Williams/Fobbs family.

Demetri was the love of my life. We met over four years ago and quickly became friends. As time went on we became much more than that and began a whirlwind relationship. We shared laughs, ups and downs, dreams and a love that was storybook like. He made me feel loved and cherished everyday we spent together. We could be in a room with dozens of people and he only had eyes on me. He had my heart with that smile and spark in his eye. I have so many wonderful memories of him. He was an amazing man with a heart of gold. He was loved by everyone he came in contact with. He spent his last four years in upstate New York with me and he was so happy. My most recent and loving memory if of our wedding day just one month ago. He was watching my friends helping get my hair and make up on and I looked over to find him in tears. Concerned, I asked him why he was crying and he said "I am marrying the woman of my dreams today and I am so filled with love and happiness that I can't help but Thank God for blessing me with a beautiful wife to share my life with." Of course, I started crying as everyone in the room did. I told him he had it wrong," I was blessed for having found the love of my life and he comes in the form of this handsome man in front of me." That day he cried until we got to the alter and looked at me with such love and adoration in his eyes that I will never forget that look in his eyes. I will carry that day as our happiest in my heart always. Rest in peace my love, you will never be forgotten. One day at a time....forever my guardian angel. Hugs n Kisses sweetie!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the words of Jesus at John 11:11-14, where he likens death to being asleep. and at John 5:28,29 - "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."

Susan from Ohio posted on 10/10/15

I am so sorry to learn of Ennio's passing. I knew him when he was a waiter at Joe's and I was only 10 years old. He showed me the "potato". Years later when I was in graduate school at NYU, my classmates from NY were amazed that this girl from Ohio would know someone in a NY restaurant and Ennio made sure that I got a little extra food to take home since I couldn't afford much as a grad student. Many years later I was thrilled to take my son to Ennio and Michaels several times. I hope that this story shows what a special person Ennio was that he could make someone feel special even in the cold NY when she was a little girl, a poor student, and finally a mother with her child the same age as when she first met him. I pray for your family and am very sad at this loss of a wonderful human being.

You are going to be tremendously missed. You will forever be in my heart, lots of love. Vinny

Grandma, I still can not believe you are gone. I am so glad that I was able to come and visit this past August. Even though I live so far away I always knew you were there for me with a simple phone call. I always looked forward to visiting and spending time with you. Visiting Astoria just won't be the same without you there. You are truly a wonderful person. I am so glad you were and always will be a part of my life. You always gave the best advice and always listened no matter how silly I sounded. Love you so much and I am sad that you won't be here to see the baby this December but he will get to hear about you and how important you are to this family Xoxo love you.

Grandma...words can't even explain how much I'll miss you. We've had so many memories, it's so hard to post just one. I will forever miss the times you used to pick me and Jessica up on the weekends to come to Astoria. We were always so excited to come see you. I will always remember walking up the avenue and going to the ABC store. I'll also never forget giving our dolls baths in buckets in your backyard. No matter what we did, we always seemed to have a good time with you. As hard as it is to say goodbye, I know you're in heaven smiling down on us. Who else will tell me it's okay to wear pajamas to the store and to eat cake for breakfast? Whenever I want to do something that I'm unsure of, I'll just think of you because you would always say, "Do what makes you happy." Thats all you ever wanted. You just wanted everyone to be happy. Thank you for being the absolute best grandma there could be. I will miss you more and more every single day. I love you so much. XOXO Love always, Alexa

 

Jess posted on 9/26/15

Gram, I still can't believe you are gone. I have so many memories of you that it's hard to pick just one. A few that stick out to me were made during sleepovers at your house. I remember eating ice cream for breakfast (shh, don't tell mom) shopping up the avenue, and playing eye witness. I truly had the BEST grandma. I already miss you so much, but I know you are looking down. Love you to the moon and back. XOXO

My beautiful, kind mother...You have shown me the meaning of life. You have taught me honesty, selflessness, compassion, laughter, strength, faith, love, and the importance of family. You have been my teacher, my guide, my protector...encouraging and supporting me from the rocking horse to the corporate world. I will always cherish the special moments we have shared together - our talks, our laughter through the good times, our crying and consoling each another through bad times, and most importantly, expressing our love for each other. As the years have gone by, we have always been there for one another, and I am so proud and honored to have been your guide and protector when you needed my help the most. During one of our special mother-son Sunday lunches, you told me how proud you were of the man that I have become...but I am indeed the fortunate one…as everything I am as a man and have accomplished is because of you and Dad. I am so grateful for all the sacrifices you have made for me. Words cannot express how much I will miss you – although I cry many tears and my heart is broken today, our special mother-son bond shall never be broken. Although you have gone to rest a little while, one day we will reunite in eternity. As I will live the rest of my life, I will continue to celebrate yours and the many gifts you have given to us all. You will live on in my heart forever. Love, Robert *Tender Reflections* by Barbara Karachalios Lullabies and baby toys Have long been put away, But memories of those simple joys Are in my heart to stay No earthly fortune could replace The happiness I've known As I've held each tiny face And watched them as they've grown The years fly by with just a glance With no time to delay The moment children take a chance And go off on their way Great wealth I'd give without a tear And bestow it on another, For I have treasures far more dear Because I am a mother

 

 

Janet posted on 9/25/15

My dear, sweet Mother. I am so thankful that you were my mom. By watching you, I've learned what it means to be a wonderful, kind and compassionate person. You were always there for me.

A special bond was formed between us the night we rushed Linda to the hospital, for this I will be forever grateful for your help. Thank you for everything. With all my love and respect, Nick.

I only had the honor and pleasure of meeting Mrs. Branciforte a few times, but her sweetness and warm-hearted personality was so clear, and everything I ever heard about her as a wife and especially a Mom, perceived her as a beautiful person and loving mother. My wish is that she rests in peace, and I know she will be watching over all her loved ones, and her love will stay with her loved ones forever...

Grandma, I will never forget when I was little how we would play with my action figures together. After we would make them fight, you would get scotch tape and paper towels to make little bandages for them, getting them better for the next battle. Only you would make sure that even action figures would be taken care of. This just goes to show what kind of compassionate, caring and all around nice person you were. I consider myself very fortunate to have had you in my life. You have helped shaped me into the man I am today and I am forever grateful.

Grandma, You are proof that an all-chocolate diet is possible. You spoiled your grandchildren unconditionally and the ice cream man is set for life because of all of the ice cream that you bought us. You were at all of my graduations and achievements saying, "Yay Michelle!" You were the first person that I called after my mother passed away and you did the impossible in making me feel better. You said that you shared a bond with Grandpa and Uncle Ang that could not be broken in death and I know that we share the same. Whenever I called you, you always said, "It's good to hear your voice." I will certainly miss hearing yours. You were a second mother and best friend to me. Love always, Your Little Girl, Michelle

My loving mother Vasiliki was a loving and devoted parent who went out her way to show her everlasting love and attention to all her family members. Her life and love for us will be forever remembered by all her children who loved her with all our hearts. And in turn we would always love her as our mother meant everything to us. We will never forget you mom and we will always love, cherish and remember you forever and ever.

Grandma was a blessing to us all. She always thought of everyone and brought happiness to anyone she met and knew. She knew how to make a terrible day better with her laughter and smile, and she could always give you the best advice on how to make things work. She was an excellent wife, a wonderful mother, an amazing grandmother, a delightful cousin, a kind daughter, a sweet niece, and a caring neighbor/ friend. There will be no one else like her and her soul will now be at peace with my grandfather. Please keep her memory in your thoughts. We love her and will miss her deeply, but she will always be with us. We love you Grandma.Thank you always for your love and care. Rest peacefully eternally. Love always your family.

You were always the happy go lucky guy and the first to help everyone and so generous. Mommy would tell me stories about you that would make me laugh and laugh. You put a smile on everyone's face no matter what mood they were in. You were the light of everyone's life that knew you. You were a wonderful brother, brother-in-law, husband, dad and a great uncle to my children. I know you will be missed so very much by all. Life will never be the same with you gone. Now you are called on for another task, the Lord need you up there to help, you know Vinny they have a shortage of lawyers, and only you can do the best job to help our Lord. Well my brother I will always talk to you and I know you will always be by my side. You are with mommy now. I love you Vinny.

You will always be remembered as a loving, generous family man; a kind soul who gave our beloved Aunt Vita such a beautiful, loving and rich life. You touched her heart as you did ours. And I will never forget your wonderful inspiration when you gave me your cherished teenage scrapbook which contained rare news clippings about WWII. I'm honored that you accompanied me on one of my many quests to search and visit specific veterans in my documentary. Your name appeared in the very first draft of the trailer in the list of credits. You will always be part of the most important project in my life. I'll always love you dear Vinny. I miss you so much.

I just recently heard about the passing of Dom. We used to hang out a long time ago when we played together down at Elmjack. He sure knew how to throw a ball, I know that because I had to catch him. It was not an easy task. I didn't see him for a long time and then bumped into him like 20 years ago at a wedding. He was still the same Dom, smile on his face as per usual. He hadn't changed a bit, which didn't surprise me at all. Although I have not seen him in years, I was so sad to hear of his passing. My condolences go out to the Lista Family. RIP Dom !

Abuelo. You didn’t need to know a word of his story – of how he he’d had to leave everything he knew and loved behind and come to a foreign country, learn a foreign language, start over with foreign customs – to know the kind of man he was. You could tell what he valued — family, dignity, hard work — with just one look at him. It was in the way he always wore a suit, no matter what the season or fashion. The way he moved with Abuelita on the dance floor, never taking a wrong step, and the way he answered yes to every invitation, always bringing his smile — and his appetite! — with him. It was in the way he kept his hands — nails perfectly trimmed, palms perfectly smoothed — and the way he held them out to anyone who needed his help. Abuelo. He was my first Spanish word, my first Santa Claus, my first understanding of what it meant to be a patriarch. And now he is my definition of what it means to be brave, for knowing it was time, once again, to leave behind the people and places he loved, and for doing it exactly the way he lived: with pride, with strength, and with his family in his heart. Abuelo.

I met Mike about a year and a half ago. Mike and I worked on Evander Child HS together, at the end of the job when all the hard to close items remained. Mike worked for the SCA, I work for WDF Inc. I've done alot of work for the SCA and worked with many Project Officers over the 10 year. Mike was one of the good people, one that could be trusted to do the right thing for you and the job. Always went out of his way to help and make things happen. It sadded me to hear of his passing very much. I would like extend my deepest sympathy to his wife and children on their lose. He was a good man and will be missed. My God Bless him and may he rest in piece.

While you and I don't know each other, my heart goes out to you and your children. David and I worked together at target for several years, and I counted him as a friend at all times. He will always be remembered as a man of integrity and someone with a quiet, but great inner strength. I am glad to have had the opportunity to have had him as a friend. He will be greatly missed.

A stand-up guy with a great work ethic and no nonsense attitude. We need more people like Mike in this world. He will be sorely missed.

Margo Sims posted on 6/10/15

My fondest memories of dear Phillip are many. He is the Godfather of my one and only daughter Susan Renee Sims, daughter of Peter LaRoca Sims. Over these many years, we have kept in touch. Susan was just beginning to reconnect with him, but I'll let her tell her story. Let me simply say that Phillip and I were spiritual and musical soul mates. We shared many philosophical opinions. Of course, the spectrum included living, bieing in the here and now and dying. It was never morbid. The discourse we shared was almost always positive and fortifying. I could go on and on about this gentle man called Ernest Phillip Newsum. He was inspirational in word and mind. Then of course we shared the music, which was our very first introduction, way before his godchild was born. I am honored to have been a part of his life, and now his death as we know it on this planet. I feel that our paths will cross again. PRA-KA-TA! You dear Phil are the Timbales in my heart, now and in the hear after. I send you ligh, love and peace, to guide forward. Margo, Ed, and Susan too

Dearest Phil was my sweet Socrates. He taught me about music, and how to play congas and bongos, and encouraged me, always. If it wasn't for his support, I would never have had the strength to become a professional musician. I will miss you here, but I will see you there! I love you. My heart goes out to Iris who has to live with the greatest loss. You will be strengthened through time.

My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Luci. May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted me during times such as this is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever after God restores his original purpose for the earth. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

Mr. Lou is the beloved father of our neighbor in McLean, VA--John Sitilides and family. Through the years and on his many trips with Mrs Frances to visit his grandchildren, he became a huge presence in all of our lives. He was a smaller fellow physically but he was enormous in stature as a man, as a patriot, as a husband, father, and grandfather. He came to America and prevailed, He was immensely proud of his country and what it had offered him. He was always positive about his native country and what it instilled in him. I will miss Lou. He was a man's man. He loved the NYPD and the US military. A PATRIOTI and a LEVENDI always. may his memory be eternal. Our deepest sympathy to Frances and the extended family. I will always see Mr. Lou in my mind's eye walking by my house with John on the father-son strolls. EONIA SOU H MNIMNI. Dean G.

Peter, We met on June 3, at Sloan Kettering in your room on the 5th floor, I had just finished my own biopsy on my lung, we discussed how we were in the same "club". We only spoke for 2 minutes, and I was truly hoping we would have had another chance to meet. I only found out last night from Philo, I am truly saddened and completely mystified, how such a beautiful, vibrant man, can be taken from this earth. Though I do not know what my own fate shall be I promise that like you, I will fight this to the end.... Robert Falzone

With my saddened heart, I reach out to his family and to all who have been touched by Peter. From the early days, high school and my most recent run-ins with him, he was always been a kind, caring, concerned individual to me and my family. What great energy! May his memory be eternal. May we find a cure!

Dear Peter, We met 3 years ago at Sloan, while you and my husband where going thru radiation. We were looking forward to see you every morning cause your positive attitude helped my husband so much. I thought you had fought cancer and you were doing well just like my husband, until I heard the news today. Even tough we were never friends, we will miss you. ΚΑΛΟ ΤΑΞΙΔΙ.

You kept me laughing from the time we met in 4th grade till present day. You never changed. You lived life to the fullest and tackled any obstacle that came your way. Unfortunately, this last one was too big but you gave it your best shot. You will be remembered for your love of life, sense of humor and kind-heartedness. There is no doubt--anyone who knew you is at a loss for words right now. My deepest condolences to your sons and the rest of your family at this extremely difficult time. May your star always shine bright--until we meet again my friend.

You will be truly missed, on this earth, you fought with all your might to hang on and beat this sickness. God had other plans for you they say the good die young. And he needed the best angle he could find, your sprit will live on within all of us. I remember when we were kids and all you did was study and became the person you are. You made everyone proud of you, made people feel good when you were around them, and always brought the best out of everyone around you. The suffering and pain is over. Rest my Brother. I love you, Sotiris your God Brother...

Your light here on earth has been extinguished, only to make your light in heaven burn brighter. You are in a place where you are not suffering, are not in pain, and where you can watch over us all especially your two beautiful sons. I am blessed to have met you, and my family blessed even more when you became my son Constantine's Godfather. You did more in your short time on earth than 10 men in a lifetime and you did it with grace, style, and an amazing sense of humor. You are gone from the physical world but are with us always from the spiritual world. I am truly convinced of this. Every time I see something out of the ordinary that makes me laugh I will know that you had something to do with it.. Your sons will see that too. They will see you in every aspect of their lives and emulate the man who was their rock. They will see and feel signs that you are always with them. Eternal will be your memory my friend. Your sons and the rest of the lives you have touched and blessed with your presence will make sure of it. Rest in Peace...

Helen's home was such a big part of my childhood. I can still see the crocheted seat covers, the plastic-covered couch, the scrabble board on the table, and the many, many photographs of her warm and loving family. Most of all though I remember her tenderness. She was a warm and wonderful person and I miss her.

 

Courtney Burgess Michak posted on 6/23/13

Helen was one of those rare individuals who was able to brighten your day just by being in her presence. When I was with Helen I felt love, compassion, kindness and the ability to a better version of myself. Her gentle spirt made her a strong influence in my life and the life of so many others. I believe the way she lived her life was her greatest lesson. I also know her legacy lives all in all the people she loved because she was a woman with so much love and grace. My love, prayers and sympathy to all of Helen's family and her extended family (all her friends.) Thank you Helen for so many wonderful memories and being a blessing in my life!

I remember with fondness what a good friend Helen was to me. She was quick with a smile, was considerate and kind, and always made me feel better when I was around her. I enjoyed our trips to the casino, but more importantly, I just enjoyed spending time with her. She was a special person. My prayers are with her family at this difficult time. Mary Damiani

Helen was one of the most warm, kind-hearted, thoughtful and generous individuals that I had the good fortune to know and love. I cherish all of the wonderful memories of her -- a warm, inviting home that me and my family frequented often; mouth-watering smells wafting upstairs to our apartment; delicious foods spread out during holidays; crochet needles clicking; laughter on the porch; and so much more. I witnessed her loving personality always shining through when interacting as a daughter to Yia Yia, a wife to Bill, a mother to Mark, Vicky, Dorothy and Chris, a grandmother to Elura, Caitlin and Emily, a godmother to my brother Chris, and a friend to my mom Sandy. I know that her wonderful spirit lives on in all of us and I am thankful for that. All my love, thoughts and prayers to her beautiful family. Jennifer Abruzzo (nee Burgess)

 

Chris Burgess posted on 6/23/13

I want to offer most heartfelt condolences to the Nanos family. Helen was one of the sweetest, kind-hearted and good-natured people that I have ever met. It is with great pride that I call her my Godmother. She was always looking out for me when I was a kid playing ball in the street. Offering a soda, cookies or giving me money for the Mister Softee truck on a hot summer day. Always including me and my family at holidays, celebrations, etc. And Greeks know how to celebrate! I am sure she and Big Bill are still looking out for their wonderful family. Now they just have a better view. To Chris, Vicky, Dorothy, Mark, Elura, Emily, Catlin and the entire family, my deepest sympathy. I'd like to think that with her passing, the disease has now passed too and Helen is whole again. Warmest Regards, Chris Burgess

Hi Angela We're praying for your mom. Abba Father: Most faithful God, lively is the courage of those who hope in You. Your servant Aura suffered greatly, but placed her trust in Your Mercy. Confident that the petition ofthose who mourn pierces the clouds and finds an answer, we beg You, give rest to Aura. Remember not her iniquities, but look upon her sufferings and grant her refreshment, light and peace. We continue to pray for Angela her only daughter and child and family members, Mike and their friends that the Holy Spirit may give them the courage and strength to cling to you always. We ask this through Christ our Lord that You may grant our needs in accord with the riches of Your Glory. Amen. Love in Christ / Dr. Emily Santa Maria

My sister introduced me to Aura many many years ago--back in college. Aura and I went on a trip to Cebu with my sister and her other friends. Years later after LIFE's many different turns and life events... I learned she had also moved to the US. Sometime in the 80's I found her and visited her in NY/NJ . It was great seeing her. Aura was a beautiful person and a TRUE friend. I often thought of her and wondered how she was. This weekend, my sister broke the news to me of her passing. I am so very sad and wished I had a chance to see her once again. I often thought of Aura. Dear Aura, I will always remember you and pray for you and your very kind family. Peace be with you.

I always loved you thea mou,and you will always have a special place in my heart. You always made me laugh and you respected me as I did respect you. Your beautiful legacy are your children, grandchildren great-grandchildren and all the family you leave behind. You taught me many things thea, but one thing I will always remember and follow was how to live life simple and yet enjoy everything that comes our way. You may have been 93 years young, but your spirit and mind kept you as young as a 25 year old yearning to enjoy life to its fullest. It's time for us to depart physically, but rest assured thea mou that your spirit and soul will be with me always through prayer, faith and hope. I know that if anyone has the determination to explore the unknown and somehow relay their findings back to us, it is you! Therefore Thea mou, in your own way as you left us with your last breathe embracing Our Lord with your arms, reach out to your beloved ones, Theo Niko, your sisters and brothers, your parents and all of our departed loved ones. Embrace them and join them in Heaven and keep good company with them. When this storm settles and your feel it's time, please send us your blessings through prayer and dreams. Let your children know that all is well. Tell your younger sister that it is alright to laugh, and joke and enjoy her life as you always did. We grieve and mourn your passing now, but deep in my heart I know that you, in your way will guide us and show us the rainbow after the storm.

When I reached adulthood, I saw Janie often and when I did- she always had pleasant things to say. She had a great sense of humor, and was always laughing. She adored her grandchildren and was so proud of her own kids. Janie was a great person and will be missed. My prayers go out to her family during this rough time. R.I.P. Janie

How do I even put into words the appreciation and love I have for you (and always will)? I really cannot. I can say that because of you and your love, I am a better daughter, mother and friend. You always gave all to everyone you knew and loved. You were selfless with your time and knowledge. You stayed strong in the face of sadness and heartache in so many forms--showing us all how to handle such situations with grace and ease. There are so many incredible memories I share with so many about you and will sit with over bottle of your favorite (Frangelico or chianti) and tell Zoey one day. The chaining of the Christmas tree, coffee can and bench to your house in Astoria, going to my first Catholic service with you and being taught how to light candles for Papa, nailing our windows shut in the Hotel, making homemade pizzas together, watching you make fun of Aunt Roberta when she baked ziti and you pulled the cheese wrapper out of your first bite laughing, taking you for "Chinese food" and "ribs" in TN, visiting to you in NY and FLA, your wise and witty cracks you would make to make us all smile, and so many more. There are too many memories to count but I know one of my fondest and one I will continue to carry on--is making pizzelles for my family as you did for all of us each year with your pizzelle maker and think of you fondly. The world was a better place with you in it but I know you have waited so long to see your true love again and will watch over us as we grow and learn to love as you have taught us. Rest in peace now Grandma--know we miss and love you so very much and while we didn't always show it as we should--we will couldn't have asked or hoped for a more incredible person to bless our lives while we were all together and in death. I love you dearly and miss you terribly.

What a privilege it has been to know Anna in her later years. Through her daughter, Sue, I had an immediate family member, ‘girls’ day out (or in)’ comrade, and fellow Italian foodie. Anna, even through the trials of her illness, was always gracious and thoughtful. She was never more beautiful than when we talked about her family, showed visitors their pictures, or when one of them called into her room and lit up her smile. Anna, you are missed already. We will see you again soon. Thoughts and love to all of the family, Angela Capelle

Playing with mom's old barbie dolls in the basement, roller skating in the basement, eating your famous "grandma's soup", going to the park down the street from your house, and our circus day we have so many pics of! Love you lots! xxxxoooo Tara

Dear Ann, Although it was a long struggle, you are finally at peace and reunited with your beloved Charlie. I will treasure the memory of the last time I saw you several weeks ago and how happy I was that you recognized me and particularly that your last words to me were "I love you". You took me in for a few months when I was 19 and made me part of the family. You even packed lunches for me to take to work. And when I needed a place to stay with a 4 month old infant during my divorce, you took me in again without hesitation. My memories of you are of constant motion- never sitting down and always, always taking care of your family. Your old fashioned remedy of olive oil and mustache comb cured Liz's cradle cap. Your heart was so big and you never, never asked for anything in return. Wonderful memories will live in the hearts of your children and grandchildren. I love you Ann

Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die.

I missed you so much! I missed seeing you everyday after work and on my day off. I missed take care of you. I missed bringing and feeds you pomelo. I missed holding your hand and made you feed better. I missed calling the nurse for you, so they can give you pain medication. I missed your smile, your face, your laugh, your jokes, your stories, the way you shines someone life and make them special. Now you have no pain and free. You are in better place but I missed you very much. I wish you are here, so we have a conversations with each other. I just can't believed you were got, without give me any sign before I left the hospital on Saturday evening. I had told you, I will see you tomorrow, but you passed right in Sunday early morning. If I know that, I will stay over night. Perhaps, you had asked me stay overnight. But I can't because I have to take care the ladies and to work next day. I am sorry, I couldn't came see you on Friday evening and tell you about my work and the Walmart and shows you what I got. Do you know that Walmart will became the superwalmart soon? I loved you and missed you so much. I know I should not got involved so deep with you. I was glad that you had said to me you love me, you care about me on Wed 22, 2013. I know you would likes marry me someday. But you know yourself and you don't wants to hurt me. However, sometime if the right time and right person, no matter how much time we have, it doesn't matter. I know, you are watching me over my shoulder and try to protects me. Because you loved me so much. The girls are missed you, they wish they can meet you in person. I am worry about Becky, she look a bit depressed and look sad. I know she knew what was happen in Sunday morning. She just don't tell me, until your cousin text me, about the news. I know you are happy be with your mom and dad now. No more pain. Until then we will meet each other again! XOXO forever

No hay palabras ni tiempo que puedan aliviar esta gran pena. Cada dia es un aprendisaje donde aprendemos continuar firmes y adelante con una gran amputacion. Porque se siente como si pedazo de ti ya no esta pero tenemos a Dios que nos fortaleze y nos rodea de amor, con personas que realmente nos ama. Al igual permanece sembrada en nuestras memorias y corazones los consejos de ellas para continuar. Gracias le doy a Dios por poner a Rosa, fiel amiga, madre, hermana, abuela-en la vida de mi madre, Margarita, por mas de 40 años mas que amistad, un lazo familiar que siempre permanecera entre nuestras familias. Esta ciertamente es una gran bendicion. Gracias Rosa, por tus consejos sabios, por tu sensillez, por tu amor, por ser atenta, por tu honestidad. Gracias Dios por formarla de esta manera, gracias por sembrar tu palabra en ella, gracias por ella. Mi corazon esta de luto porque se me fueron mis dos amores, pero me consuela saber que si permanezco en el camino con Dios algun dia las vere de nuevo. De parte de nuestra familia, nuestro mas sentido pesame a la familia Diaz, German, y Pimentel- ciertamente compartimos este gran dolor con ustedes. Los amo muchisimo a todos, si en algo me necesitan estoy a su disposicion. Los ama. Xoxoxoxox Loida y Abelito

Mama, thank you for all that you have done for our families. I thank you for always loving me and my children and always being there for us. You were and always will be a very special person in my life as well as Leighke and Jordn( El- Burrito). To this day I thank God that you were part of the reason my wife Eileen is who she is today and I will cherish and love her forever. You know I will take good care of them. Until I see you in heaven, love Benjamin (El-Burro)

Sra. Rosa now walks with the angels with her Lord & Savior. She joins with our other loved ones who've gone on before to watch over the rest of us who are still in the earth until such a time as we meet again in Heaven. This is the great hope that we have to help us through this journey called life. So, Sra. Rosa, until we meet again...

My BELOVED aunt, I ll always remember how you care about me the period I was studying in New York. Always asking to come for lunch or dinner, if I need some help, talk to me and comfort me with my personal problems away from family. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT. You had ALWAYS a BIG GENUINE smile on your face! Of course how can I forget the loooong hours I spent to your house or you to our house after the war in Cyprus. Always together with cousins Alex, Stathi and Katia Alisson as our houses were so near. Now you will be with your beloved ones in Heaven. My thoughts with your for this BIG lost my beloved cousins.

I WATCHED YOU BECOME A FAMOUS AND SUCCESSFUL RESTAURANT OWNER AND CHEF OVER THE YEARS...WHEN WE KNEW YOU, THIS WAS YOUR DREAM. YOU MADE IT! FOR YOUR LIFE TO BE OVER IN YOUR MID 50's IS SHOCKING AND SO UNFAIR. I NEVER STOPPED LOVING YOU MY ENTIRE LIFE, THOUGHT ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY. YOU WERE LOVED LIKE NO OTHER, ANTONIO. I WISH I HAD THE CHANCE TO TELL YOU GOODBYE BUT I WILL SEE YOU IN HEAVEN. MY HEART IS BROKEN AND WILL NEVER HEAL. I LOVED YOU MY WHOLE LIFE AND STILL DO. ALL MY LOVE FOREVER, COCO XOXOXOXO

Ancora una volta viene chiamata al cielo una persona a cui vogliamo un bene dell'anima ed e' come se un pezzo del nostro cuore se ne va via.Il Paradiso diventa sempre piu' pieno di persone meravigliose.Forse e' proprio per questo che il Paradiso e' cosi' bello.Per la nostra famiglia e' una ferita nel cuore che non guarira' mai ma restando uniti riusciremo a non farla sanguinare. Cercheremo di vivere questa vita terrena piu' buoni e generosi seguendo l'esempio che ci sta dando il nostro Papa Francesco. Sara' cosi' facendo che anche noi un giorno ci guadagneremo il Paradiso e saremo di nuovo tutti insieme. Antonio vivra' sempre nel nostro cuore e guardando i suoi figli rivedremo sempre il suo sorriso bello e sincero. Mi addormentero' stasera pensando che Antonio e' tra le braccia della sua mamma e che il suo grande cuore e' finalmente guarito da ogni dolore

Ricorderò sempre Antonio come il cugino dal cuore grande. Uomini così, con quella generosità, con quel senso della famiglia, con quell'attaccamento alle radici, sono una benedizione di Dio ed io ringrazio Dio per avermi donato Antonio come primo cugino. Era uomo di grandi valori. Ricordo come gli brillassero gli occhi ogni volta che parlava della bandiera italiana, di quella americana o della sua famiglia: di quella da cui proveniva e di quella che si era creata. Sono certo che avrà il premio dei giusti e che dal cielo ci sorrida già, con quello sguardo aperto, accogliente e protettivo di cui ha sempre fatto dono a tutti quelli che lo incontravano. Sono idealmente lì, accanto a ciascuno di voi in questo momento di prova. Vi abbraccio forte. Giannino

Ciao Antonio Teresa e Famiglia Pepe.

Dear Zio Antonio, I still picture you on your chair saying “ciao a Zia”! Our memories that we shared will never be replaced. In other words, nobody can ever replace you. You are still here with us. Every thanksgiving, Christmas, or any holiday there will be one empty chair for you. We will make you a plate filled with your favorite foods, and hope the next morning the food will not be there. I remember you used to sing me a song that I am listening to right now. “Who let the dogs out”. One day I will see you, I hope you know that. I have come to your house everyday since the tragedy happened and I saw the whole family crying for you and for a little while I would cry too. In my dreams tonight I would like to see you talk to me. Tell me things that you felt when you where gone. Right now there are many questions that cannot be answered, or at least not yet. I miss you and love you soooo much Zio Yours truly, Your niece, Luisa

 

Antonella Benedetta Bruno posted on 5/27/13

Dear zio Antonio thank you for all the beautiful things you did for your friends and your family and for the yummy food you always made, we will always remember you and never forget about you. I will always message you on the computer every day. I wish I can see you today in the funeral home if mommy says I can come. Rest in peace with all the people in the sky. Say hello to Jesus for me, and say hello to the angels for me because I teach them every single day about math, reading, and about all the things in the world. Thank you. Love, Antonella, your goddaughter and niece.

My memories of Aunt Rose include the fact that her eggplant was the best anywhere! When I worked in Manhattan from 1980-82, Aunt Rose would take the subway and meet me for shopping, chatting and lunch. I remember that I could barely keep up with her as she snaked through the traffic and the busy aisles in Macy's and Gimbels. I treasure those memories and the time I got to spend with Aunt Rose, just the 2 of us.

Our deepest condolences on the loss of so precious a loved one. She will always be in your hearts and minds. Do not stand at my grave and weep Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there.

The first, and only, time I had the honor of meeting "Grandma" Bellacosa, was at the wedding of my niece, Shannon, to her grandson, Tom Alfonso. Being from an Italian mother myself, I was instantly attached to her. I remember sharing Sambuca with her in celebration of the newlyweds. I've enjoyed seeing pictures of her with her family and being able to see her great personality and sense of humor in them. What a loving woman. One who was obviously a wonderful mother and grandmother as is proven by the close, loving and personable family she leaves as her legacy. Thank you Grandma Bellacosa for putting your stamp on the world. Rest in peace.

I would give anything to be there these next few days. I really wanted to be there at least once the past week to see him one last time but there hasn't been a second grandpa and my family hasn't been in my thoughts during this time. I love everyone and will miss grandpa more than anyone will know.

Dear Uncle Frank, I will miss you forever. I still have the ballerina music box that you and Grandma gave me when I was a little girl. You were always so kind and patient with us. I remember all the great pastries you'd bring over every Sunday. It was always such a treat. I can still see you and Dad always figuring out how to fix things or just make them better. You two always knew everything. I'm so grateful that you were such a great part of my life. I miss the trips to Greenwood Lake and the duck boat you made. I was so proud that you taught yourself how to swim. So many memories and you're gone so quickly. I will love and miss you forever.

 

Jim Savarese posted on 3/14/13

I remember the cool night air at Greenwood lake, sleeping with the window open. The duck boat, and waiting while the Wright Brothers tried to get any one of a number of boat engines started. Too rich, too lean. I remember the two tone station wagon, and getting ribbed by my friends because I kissed my Uncle on the cheek when he came over to see us. Pastries. Birthday cards with a check inside. Aunt Ginny. Aunt Rosie. Salice Terme. Christmas cards with a check inside. I remember not being too good at sending thank you cards, but always getting cards next time anyway. I remember lots of family, Savarese, Sardi, it was a different time as a kid. Cousins, Chicago, New Jersey. The Wright brothers. Model airplanes and gliders. Discussions on designing a locator beacon. Germans, tanks, bazookas, and a purple heart. A train that runs by light. Nutcrackers and fruit at Christmas time. An old photo in an Army uniform. I remember the quiet and calm, the intense kindness he had, and the great admiration I had. Just memories, and not a single bad one, and in no particular order, all due to the presence and influence of a great man, whom I will never forget. I love you Uncle Frank. One last kiss on the cheek.

Uncle Frank, I am at a loss for words...truly. I will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have the fondest memories of you and your green work jumpsuit. That was YOU through and through. Your generosity was felt by many both directly as well as indirectly. At your judgment, when Jesus asks, "Did you cloth the naked?" You will be able to answer, "yes Sir, I did." When He asks, "Did you feed the hungry?" You will be able to answer, "yes Sir, I did." When He asks, "Did you do your works of charity so that all may see and give you praise?" You will be able to answer, "no Sir, I didn't." When He asks, "Did you love your neighbor as yourself?" You will be able to answer, "yes Sir, I did..." and you would be lying for in my opinion your love of neighbor surpassed even your love of self. Frank....Uncle Frank, you loved the Jesus in those around you and it showed in every aspect of your life. Pilar and I as well as my mom and dad pray that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might overlook your frailties and your imperfections and instead look kindly upon you because of your deeds as such deeds are not so common amongst men. You will always be in our memories and if we make it to Heaven, we hope to one day see you there...in your green jumpsuit of course, looking for something...ANYTHING to fix and perfect! We Love You, Gabriel & Pilar Espinosa

I am so sad to be late on this and hope it is not disrespectful to leave my thoughts here at this time. I deeply hurts me to now know this. I definitely appreciated the times we shared at work at The Lion King, we had many laughs and enjoyed lunches with one another. It was the year 2000 that I had to leave there and it was around the year of 2009 that Jessica and I linked back up by way of the phone. I was happy to hear from her and that she remembered me due to as she said of the deep impact I had made on her in times past. We spoke several times thereafter that time but lost a little contact again in 2011 & 2012, but it began to hit me again in wanting to speak with again after hearing about her pain and sickness. In the past I had shared scriptures with her to comfort her but that has ended now as I learned recently this year of 2013. It hurts me so much because Jessica (Jessie, I would call her)and I could not speak again ... It is only my hope and prayer that if her mother, who I grew to love like Jessica over our speaking with one another, if we could speak again ... it would help in my recent grief and I mean no harm ... My Love goes out to Jessica and her Family <3 Jermaine --- 718-213-6720 --- HolyRivs99@aol.com

We are deeply saddened to hear about Jessica. She and my son were engaged, and, for about 5 years she was a part of our lives.it broke our hearts when she and Frank made a decision to go their separate ways.when a loving relationship fails, for whatever reasons, it affects everyone in the family. regardless of the break-up, we were so saddened because, for 5 years, jessica was a close,and, loved member of our family.we all hurt deeply over the break up. Though we never got to see Jessica again, she and I re-connected about 3 years ago, when she found me on facebook, after my husband and I retired and moved to Florida.I looked upon Jessica as if she were my own daughter.She continued to call me mom, and, my husband, dad. Jessica told me that she was ill, and, she wanted me to have a journal that she had written. i told her that i was going to try to make the trip up to NY in March.the last time that she messaged me was towards the end of February. When i didn't hear from her anymore, a mutual friend found out that she had passed away, and, directed me to this obituary in facebook. i still have trouble believing this.My entire family is heart broken. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and, even to her cat, Sammie, who Jess adored!!! There was something so warm and loving about Jessica, and, her kind and loving spirit, that just drew people to her.She had a heart as big as all outdoors, and, all that she desired was to be loved in return. there is nothing that she would not do for her friends.she was loving and true, and, her smile could warm your heart, and, light a room. On behalf of my family, i want to offer our prayers and condolences to all of you for your tragic loss. Dear, sweet Jessica, we will always love and miss you.i hope that you have found PEACE. REST IN PEACE, JESSICA. love, the Feder Family.......Ruth, Carl, Frank, and, Rachel

Jessica taught us all how to live life. She connected with so many people and genuinely cared about all the people who were a part of her life, friends and family. Jessica was the most dynamic person I've ever experienced in my life. I will love her forever and I know I will be with her again. Love is the one thing that carries on from this world to the next. We will all experience that love we shared with Jessica again in the future which is a promise from God. I love Jessica with all my heart and that love is eternal. God bless you all and God bless Jessica.

Best seats I ever had in the second row. God bless you and may you rest in peace.

Not many people touch our lives the way Basili could make you feel loved and accepted. Always a warm hug ,a firm warm hand,a smile. His family always on top and above all.Even a friend from years back could find his place in Basili's life without any hesitation .Good looking,sparkle in the face,Pino Silvestre scent to keep you alert of the next joke. So many stories can fill someones life with words,memories and yet there is always room for one story you have not heard yet.People from back home in Athens wish to his family to share only the best and carry-on the proud feeling of having a father, a grandfather like him.May his soul rest in peace along side with his beloved parents,sister, cousins and friends who will receive him in eternity. Every shadow can be a way to feel his love coming down to his beloved wife and children.We will miss him but NEVER forget him.

The hurt I feel cannot be described or written. Baba you were the one who taught me to ride my bike and roller skate one of my favorite hobbies that I still do today. My college days you would make sure I would get on that train to CCNY by 7am for my 8am class. When I fell in school you were the first one at the hospital to take me home. I will miss our rides home from a day of working and talking about life and listening to our favorite station on the radio 1010wins. I have part of you in me and when I look in the mirror I see your face as every said we looked alike. We had a love for the beach and like you I can stay there for hours under the sun. I brought a smile to your face and everyday after when Christopher was born. I write for him he will miss you dearly especially your talks and little bickering between you too. You left us too soon I just wish I held you called you or even seen you before this day. Today the angels will take you to the place where you were meant to be. I love you so much and one day we will see one another again until then rest in peace.

Dear George and Family, Please accept our sincere condolences. It is an awful thing to loose someone close to you and when it happened on Christmas Eve it makes it harder. As you know Dino died on Christmas Eve 8 years ago, and the holiday hasn't been the same since. May the memories comfort you and bring you peace. We are sorry that we can not attend the funeral. Love, Valerie, Dean and Nicole Kousoulas

I spent so much time being angry at how you hurt me. The things that you put me through have changed me for the rest of my life and I will carry those scars for as long as I live but I loved you so deeply and I tried, I tried so hard to help you and to make things work, to make things right but that wasn't enough. You had decided long before me that nothing in your life was going to work out and destroyed everything around you as a result, yourself most of all. The memories that we shared together will always hold a place in my heart, as will you. I can't believe that you are gone, I'm still waiting for someone to tell me that this is just a terrible joke in extremely poor taste and that you are sat at home with that stupid grin on your face. I hope that you have finally found happiness and peace. Goodbye, Chris. Be free.

"...and when he shall die, cut him into little stars, and he will make the face of Heaven shine so bright, that all the world will fall in love with night." Shakespeare I remember a smiling shining face, always happy. Once, when my son who is Richie's age was going somewhere , in their teen years, I was concerned about kids that were fighters. My son said, "Don't worry Mom, Richie Cerniglia will be there,...nothing bad is gonna happen. " He was a beautiful blonde-haired child, and a handsome outgoing young man,..always courteous and smiling, and HAPPY. I am so sorry that the world is deprived of his bright light. Fran Morgan

What can we say about Spyros. Wealth of knowledge. Brother was a walking encyclopedia- touched upon many topics. Words can NOT describe how we feel and how much of a terrific man he is. Very fond memories every time. Everyone else here that has written has hit the nail beyond 100% !! Never be forgotten. His generosity and time he took for you was beyond gracious. He did alot for everyone he came in contact with including myself. He opened me up to new wonderful things and our conversations were endless and would last for hours on end, with 1 topic leading to another. We had many things in common (which will not be mentioned because they are many to list). His laugh was unforgettable and put a smile on me always. I will not forget how we met. Will not forget his help. Will never forget his love, support, advice, passion for what he believed in (especially when he was right on things). We all love him like family - because - he was part of our family. Until next time. Until we see you soon - you will still guide us (he knows what I mean). As he said: 'Life is beautiful, that's how it is and life goes on - now let us play chess!' . Hope your journey was painless, you traveled into a better place. You will be able to teach us more when we see you again - I can't wait !! Much love always, -Yannis

Steven Papadakis posted on 12/18/12

There are no words to describe Spyro; he was larger than life! He was my mentor, friend, and brother. He took me under his wing, opened his heart and mind, and let me into his world. I know he didn't do that for everyone and that meant the world to me. I know he loved me and I'm sure he knows that I love him and that I will keep him in my heart, always! I can't imagine Freemasonry, and other bodies, without Spyro. It just won't be the same. Spyro, I miss you!!! We all miss you!!! Steve

 

Clifford Jacobs posted on 12/17/12

I met Spiros about 15 years ago, he had a wonderful, loving and kind personality. We lived not far from each other and he always gave me a lift to Masonic meetings. (He and I shared membership in many of the same organizations.) He possesed a great intellect and was passionate about history, philosophy & The Craft. Often we would meet at Bahari's in Astoria for dinner. We talked about Stanley Kubrick, Pink Floyd, life, love and politics. If you made him laugh you were fortunate to hear a wonderful sound. Our road trips were filled with many conversations and lots of laughter. I will miss him dearly

 

Piers Vaughan posted on 12/17/12

Spiros and I met back in 1996 in Bayonne. From the first time we met we became firm friends. I cannot recall having a more reliable companion. Over the years, both in Masonry and in the other Orders we shared he was a rock. He supported me in everything I did and was always the first to volunteer. He was incredibly openhearted and sincere, which sadly sometimes caused him great pain when he saw a friend fall or felt betrayed by someone he trusted. He was never guarded with his opinions, and it was always fun to watch him talking with his fellow Greeks - it was difficult to know whether they were debating a point of philosophy or threatening to kill each other sometimes! Spiros, you were the most constant of friends and the best traveling companion one could ever hope for. Your appreciation for the spiritual, you thirst for knowledge and your determination to be a guardian angel for those you respected will forever guarantee you a place in my heart. I wish you well on your transition, and may you learn those secrets you always sought at the feet of Jean-Baptiste Willermoz, Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin and all the Unknown Masters.

 

Jason Sheridan posted on 12/17/12

I first meet Spiros in 1996 or so, and ever since then he has been a good friend over the years, he has touched so many lifes in so many different ways. He was always passionate and forceful with ihis viewpoint which I have learnt a great deal from, but I also saw the immense compasion and care he showed. He has travelled to my house in Bayonne NJ on many occassion for different events we have hosted for different organizations, as well as in New York City, I will always remember the impact he has had on my life. I wish his Brother and other family in Greece and long standing friends such as Steve Papadakis in Athens, the strength to cope with the loss of someone who was loved by many people.

John was my uncle, my mother's younger brother. Mom told me stories about the antics of their youth, like how John once jumped from the top of a bureau to the bed and wound up bouncing right out the window. For years during the 1950s, Uncle John and Aunt Mary, along with their son Jackie, visited John's mother, my grandmother, pretty much every Saturday or Sunday. My mom, siblings and I lived in the same apartment building as my grandmother, so I often got to see the Tucciarone family during these visits. More often than not, Uncle John brought along with him his latest money-making idea. He would get very animated as he did his best to sell the idea to the family. One of his ideas wound up becoming a big part of my mom's life. That day, Uncle John had brought with him a suitcase filled with costume jewelery. He even tried to sell some of it to me! Uncle John was the kind of guy who wouldn't hurt a fly. He always had a smile on his face, and he always greeted me with a gentle "Hello, Phyllis." He and Aunt Mary were two of the kindest, gentlest people I've ever known.

The most beautiful woman who had life and love in her eyes. She sacrificed and worked hard but, most of all gave love and was generous to everyone around her. I will miss my auntie. I have special memories of her. Her loved her grandchildren so much Paula and Sabrina. I remember her cooking and feeding us all day. I loved visiting Queens, NY when I was a young teenager. Maria took us on the sub way. It was an amazing experience to be in New York. May she rest in peace and be with her husband in heaven. Love you soooo much! xxxooo

The Passing of a Courageous Person: Aspasia Christopher “Go speak to your Godmother,” said my late mother, Cleo P. Tsounis. “She knows. She is usually right and has great ideas. Aspasia told me a person should go to college only if they make the City University of New York.” This was my role model growing up. She was a petite brunette, who wore the finest dresses in bright colors. She had the respect of everyone on our block in Astoria. A heart of gold, she tried to help everyone. Aspasia, as she asked all to call her, lived and respected her in-laws, the Christofis. She lived in harmony with them till their death. She created the definition of Godmother as the magical model in Cinderella. Mrs. Aspasia Couloumbis Christopher passed away on Tuesday evening, November 20th, surrounded by family in her Astoria home. She is survived by her two children, Diane and Nicholas, their spouses Penny and Scott and four grandchildren, Vanessa and spouse Shawn, Simone, Alexander and Jacqueline, her brother Peter, sister-in-law Mary Christofis Rallis and goddaughter, Sally Rallis. The wake was held on Friday, November 22nd at Farenga Funeral Home at 3808 Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria, NY. This unique survivor of WWII Greece, who was a role model to many, passed away on Tuesday evening, November 20th in her Astoria home. The funeral liturgy was performed at St. Catherine and St. George Greek Orthodox church at 2230 33rd St., Astoria, NY. A memorial dinner followed at Zenon, Astoria. Mrs. Christopher was born in Utica, New York. The family moved to Greece during the “Great Depression”. The Couloumbis family was from the middle class of Cephalonia. They had members of the Philiki Etairia (1821 Greek Revolutionary Committee), educators, WWII guerilla forces and the educated middle class of Greece. She attended Greek elementary and high schools, during WWII. “My family experienced the trauma of the German occupation, while we were residing in Athens,” she said. “As soon as the war ended in 1945, we returned to the United States.” She recently told me a WWII story. “Our gardener in a suburb of Athens died during the Famine, leaving three children. His widow did not have money to bury him. My Mother and a neighbor asked the Cemetery keeper to dig a grave and they would wheel the body for burial. Payment was a small bottle of olive oil. The two women wheeled the deceased in a garden cart. The cemetery keeper opened the gates and showed them a freshly dug grave. He took the blanket off and threw the dead body in the grave. The Keeper said, ‘Where he (the dead gardener) is going cannot be worse than where he came from.” It was revealed that the gardener was Jewish. Mrs. Christopher was awarded the honor “Righteous among the Nations.” Mrs. Christopher is a graduate of the Hunter College undergraduate division. She was granted a Master of Arts degree from CUNY in the field of Counseling. The late educator’s versatile background was that of an elementary school teacher, education advisor for the High School Auxiliary Services and Greek bilingual Counselor in P.S. 70. She was the first Greek Bilingual Counselor in New York City in the 1970’s. She was engaged in professional research on the topic of “School Maladjustment and Parental Depression among Greek Immigrant Children”. She was listed in “Who’s Who in the East”. She was a member of the following organizations: American Association of University Women; Hellenic-American Educators Association; Executive Board of the Greek-American Behavioral Sciences Institute and the Sunday School Committee of St. Demetrios in Astoria. Her philosophy was “the child needs to develop a new language, behavior patterns and positive attitude towards school and the host culture. We must encourage, support and aid him/her in his/her communication with students and teachers. In working with parents, it is especially important to keep in mind the Greek’s sensitivity to criticism and feeling of individualism and independence. “ She was a champion of woman’s rights. “Women have been unable in previous years to fulfill their right place in American society,” she said in a previous interview. “I am in full support of the Equal Rights Amendment. Hopefully, my daughter and all young women will not have to contend with the discrimination and social pressures that women of past generations labored with.” It was revealed to me Mrs. Christopher had aspirations of becoming a doctor. She was a woman of her times and was unable to fulfill her dreams. She was a founding member of the “Greek American Behavioral Sciences Institute” (GABSI) around 1977. “A major organization goal of GABSI is to help make parents aware of existing health agencies,” she once said. “As professionals, we must see that Greek American students get the best health care available.” She was married to the late Chris Christopher (Christofis), my Godfather, a son of immigrants from Limnos. He was a WWII veteran and the Chief of the Cartography Department of the United Nations for ten years. Recently, I helped evacuate a retired married couple of librarians from the United Nations during the Hurricane Sandy catastrophe. They remembered Chris Christopher as “a dedicated cartographer, studying the long charts in the library for his work”. The image Mrs. Christopher had among her Astoria neighbors of more than fifty years was that of a person who cares. One parent, whose daughter is now a Hunter College graduate, recalled how Mrs. Christopher volunteered her services in teaching her daughter to play the piano. I remember Mrs. Christopher giving up her Christmas vacation to tutor me in geometry. She helped me pass and gain admittance into Arista. "Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well," Aristotle. I came from a blue collar family. Aspasia was the first college graduate on our block in the 1950’s. Aspasia gave me pep talks on becoming an educated, independent woman. She gave me the finest gifts of my childhood that I have today and plan to give to my daughter. I honor her more than my parents, As Aristotle points out, because she helped me follow a life of living well. Her legacy can be best explained by Pericles quote “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/p/pericles.html#JHCSz417APAd08sX.99

Mrs. Chiaramida, or "grandma" as she was affectionately known, was a bright, shining light. One need look no further than her three singular children to know the depth of her specialness. She was wise, kind, empathic, witty, and just plain wonderful. I am so thankful that our paths crossed. She left a mark on my soul and etched a place in my heart. I burn brighter because of her. We all do. I pray God's comfort rest upon all of grandma's family members. I pray each of her loved ones smiles, knowing how profoundly she touched those of us on the periphery.

Michael was one of the brightest and most talented dispatchers I have ever encountered in my 28 years in the Limo industry. His skills and abilities were unsurpassed. He also had a big heart for all those around him. I am very sad that I was out of touch and that we had not spoken in some time when he passed. He spoke lovingly and often of his sister and his mother. My thoughts and prayers are with them. I always beleived that evetually he would find his way home. Now he has. I will miss him very much.

Fran "Curcurato" Armstrong posted on 11/24/12

Rudy may be my boyfriend when I was 15 or 16 years old. He was two years older than me. His brother's name is Raymond and his sister's name is Lorraine if I have the correct Rudy Skiber, We lived in Astoria, Queens. His wife was named Cindy and they had a daughter Cheryl. Last time he called was the day of Cheryl's Christening. I saw a message from Charlie. I knew a Charlie. He was Rudy's friend and we would hang out at Rudy's parents house and he would fly his pigeons that he kept in the backyard. His mother (who I adored) would chastise him and say, "why don't you ever take her out somewhere?" Can someone let me know if I have the correct person? Part of me hopes he's not because he would have been 64 and that is too young to leave this earth, but I read that he had an illness. I can't tell you why I was motivated to look him up. It has happened a few times before where out of the blue I get the urge to seek out someone from my past. It's usually bad news. Please let me know. God bless.

Playing baseball with you, me, Ashley, & Lauren in the bedroom with 4 pillows as the bases and a rolled up sock as the ball lol no matter how much Nana yelled at you about letting us play you still let us. NO PARENTAL SUPERVISION! I remember when I was little and you used to sit and tell me to read different things and told me how beautiful I read and always made me feel so good about everything I did. You were the definition of a Great man. Loved everyone, took care of everyone, not one bad bone in your body. You gave Me, Ashley, & Veronica everything and more I hope you know how much you mean to us and everyone else's life youve touched. You had a heart of gold. Truly. I really wish you couldve been here to see Jailen grow but I know your watching us from heaven. In everything I do I will keep you with me Papa and I hope you come visit me soon in my dreams. Forever in my heart & Forever there you will stay. Until we meet again Pop! Love you so much. "WHO LOVES YA BABY?" "JAMMM PACKED" "THIS IS LIVING" <3

My most treasured memories of Uncle Rudy are from when my sister & I and my cousins were young. He always hung out with us kids at every party or when we were over the house. He always spoke to you and listened like you were the only person in the room never made us kids feel like he would rather be hanging out with someone else. Uncle Rudy & Aunt Cindy would pick up my sister & I when we were little on Saturday's while Cheryl was in dancing school and take us on their errands with them. We would then pick up Cheryl and go get something for lunch. We would go to someplace like McDonalds and eat our lunch in the McDonalds parking lot which is funny because if we weren't going to bring it home why didn't we all just go in ;) but if you know Uncle Rudy you understand...lol. We never did anything exciting on those Saturday's but we didn't have to because those were the best times and so dear to us. I love you Uncle Rudy and everyone keeps mentioning your laugh and I will as well, it was the most genuine laugh I've ever heard, never a polite fake laugh, if you were laughing you meant it! Your outlook on life especially in the end was a great lesson to all of us. After being diagnosed you lived with a dignity & grace that no one will ever forget and we will all carry with us until we meet again! I love you! <3 Oh and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that your splits on the dance floor were always a highlight of any party!!!

I remember meeting Thea Eva as a little girl, when she came from Greece as Theo Alex's new wife. I recall thinking what a pretty, stylish, woman this was, full of energy and always laughing. Throughout the years her love for her family was evident in how hard she worked to raise her daughters, always with that same energy and spirit that I first saw. May she rest in peace and her memory be eternal.

There are those that go through life spreading joy and happiness. They give of themselves so that we have something extra. They do not give from their surplus but from their "want". They are the blessed few that walk this earth and enjoy a simplicity of heart and mind that the rest of us should envy. Aunt Antoinette is such a person. The sadness we feel in our hearts at her passing is the knowledge that there is one less person in our lives spreading warmth and love. I am sure each person who reads this has many personal, wonderful memories with Aunt Antoinette. Her life is an example to us on many levels but ultimately there is only one lesson to be learned. Love one another and you will spread love throughout the earth. Each time you spread love her memory will live and grow...... She made a difference in our lives and will continue to make a difference for the rest of our lives.........

I was stunned when I got a call from Adrianna telling me that Dirk had passed way. Dirk Dickten was good people. I knew Dirk for over twenty years. I met him when I was in the hi-fi business. We shared a passion for music and sound reproduction. Many an evening was passed listening to music, talking about music, music reproduction, recording techniques, sound reproduction etc. We lived on separate coats so I hadn't seen him and Adrianna often this last ten years, but I've rarely met someone I shared so many interests with. He shared my passion for, love of, and fervent belief in the power of music to bring people together like few other things can. He also shared my belief in loyalty to the people in your life. I've found this to be an increasingly rare quality in people as years go on. He had this tremendous zeal and enthusiasm for life that I so enjoyed. I'll really miss Dirk. He was one of my best friends. I wish I'd been poised enough to have known the appropriate things to say to Adrianna when she called. I was just so shocked I couldn't think clearly. He was one of those people that was always a joy to share things with.

 

Rudy posted on 8/23/12

I spent one year close to Dirk. And what an year. Living in NY, rocking and learning with a good friend as Dirk. Good meals, good drinks, good music, good vibe, one of the greatest companies one could have. I've been missing him since I left NY in the summer of 2005. But now, it's different. But as far as I know, he got a major welcome upstairs. Because, that's what a good soul as this deserve. Cheers, Dirky!

Ich bin so unendlich traurig, dass ich Dich verloren habe. Deine Stimme und Deine optimistische und liebe Art werden mir so sehr fehlen, aber Du wirst immer in meinem Herzen sein. Du warst ein liebender Sohn. Deiner jüngeren Schwester hast Du als erstes die Worte "Mozart" und "Anna Moffo" beigebracht und Dich bis zuletzt um sie gesorgt. Mit Adriana als Ehefrau hattest Du Dein Glück gefunden. Du hast Dein Leben von kleinauf geliebt, die Musik war Dein ständiger Begleiter. Vieles davon hast Du mit mir geteilt, auch aus der Ferne. Du wirst mir fehlen, wie soll es ohne Dich nur weitergehen. Ich weiss noch wie heute, als wir beide zusammen bei Ibach waren und Du Deine Leidenschaft für das Klavierbauen entdeckt hast. Damit entwickelte sich Dein Leben rasant und Dein grösster Wunsch, eines Tages mit Steinway zu arbeiten, erfüllte sich 1983 bis zu Deinem viel zu frühen Abschied. Möge der Herr Dich in sein himmlisches Reich aufnehmen Deine Mami

Dirk, you had such an understanding of the voice of a Steinway piano and were always able to let that voice sing out through your master touch. You also had the heart and soul of such a kind and caring person that you shared with everyone you met. I was so privileged to have been your friend and to have shared a part of your life. God's pianos will now be in good hands.

On July 19th the world was robbed of an incredible human being. May God bless you Steve and your entire family. You will be missed my good friend!

I thought a lot about what I would wanted to say if I were at Yia-Yia's first year memorial service. I'm not so great with words, but there are just a few things I wanted to share. If you can, would you be able to read this poem and the paragraph below. Thank you kindly. - Nikki LANDSCAPE WITH SNOW The philosopher in front of his wooden shack in the Black Forest was quite cordial and these were the last words he uttered while bidding his tired caller farewell: Don’t leave just yet, let’s keep on talking about Heraclitus and Hölderin all night long, about life and death, about everlasting tears or about the snow and the beauty of the mountains. But don’t ever ask me how they tore out the hair, how they stole rings from the fingers of the dead, or which river they threw their ashes in. Don’t ever ask me why all this took place. What happened, happened. Everything has already been said and not even one more word will I add. --STAMATIS POLENAKIS What I remember so clearly about Yia-Yia in the 24 years I knew her was her compassion, her dedication to family, and her spirit. She imparted much wisdom to me over the years, but one theme that came up time and time again was her love of education and her desire to see Steph and I succeed. Yia-Yia was always curious about what I was learning in school and my plans for the future. She encouraged me to go far and imparted her belief that I could do anything I wanted. When I was younger, I saw her love of teaching come out when she would teach Steph and I to sing songs or read stories in Greek. Now, I know that what she taught me was much deeper - she taught me to have confidence in my abilities and to never stop reaching for the top. I remember telling her that I wanted to be a doctor and she was so proud - just seeing her happy that I wanted to pursue such a difficult field is probably one of the reasons I held onto that dream so strongly. I think of Yia Yia often, especially when I am studying and frustrated. He

Remembrances of Sevasti Economou July 9, 2012 One of six children, Sevasti was born in 1920 in Symi, one of the 12 Dodecanese islands of Greece, to Diasinou and Nicholas Skopelitis. When she was an infant, her family moved to Piraeus where she grew up before moving to the United States in 1947. As the oldest daughter and a very gifted, talented and creative student, Sevasti was also depended upon to help her mother care and provide for her four brothers and one younger sister: Nikitas, Stavros, Stelios, Demetrios, and Hartomeni. Having been delegated the role of caregiver at an early age, Sevasti had hoped to one day become a teacher. Unfortunately, the devastating economic and political turmoil of the 1930’s Depression followed by the German bombings of Piraeus during WWII made it necessary for Sevasti to discontinue her high school education so as to do volunteer work for the Red Cross, distributing food and supplies, which also helped her family and relatives deal with survival during five horrific years. After WW II, Sevasti felt she was too “old” to go back to high school, but was encouraged by former instructors to take a series of exams which earned her an equivalency high school diploma; a tribute to her intelligence, strong work ethic and the importance she placed on pursuing one’s education. One of Sevasti’s uncles approached her mother in 1945, asking if he could send one of Sevasti’s photos to another hard-working Symian in New York City, which resulted in a two-year mail correspondence and courtship before marrying and leaving Greece in 1947 for the last time. Not knowing a word of English and separated from her parents, siblings and relatives in Greece, Sevasti soon decided to enroll in a neighborhood ESL program, where she mastered enough English in six months to converse with local merchants and neighbors in the South Bronx on basic needs. Life in a new country also brought on additional challenges and misfortunes, including the premature death of her first born, the tragic drowning of her favorite brother, Nikitas, and the untimely death of one of her twin daughters, Irene. And yet, Sevasti’s ability to recover from these tragic events, in addition to caring for her husband John who battled emphysema and Parkinson’s, and her more recent battles with her own ailments, are remarkable testaments to Sevasti’s incredibly resilient and noble spirit. Admired for her ability to embrace and value quality individuals, Sevasti preferred to have few select friends, living by example, and dedicating her life to her faith, Greek Orthodox traditions, and more importantly, to her beloved family, John, Irene, Stella, Nicholas, Angela, Nicole and Stephanie. She lived a long and profoundly rich life, reflected in her own words: There where you see difficulty, you will also encounter the good.

You were also fun and quick with good jokes. One of the most pleasant people I ever had the honor to meet and work with. Although I moved onto Lowe and you to McCann, It was always nice to have you join in for lunch with Jeanne and I. I'm sorry that I haven't been able to see you since I've moved away. You are sorely missed by all. My condolences to your family and loved ones. With a heavy heart, i bid you farewell and wish you peace.

Frank was great person who I shared many laughs with. He was one of the kindest people I ever met. I could not thank him enough for the 13 years he spent with my sister and my niece and nephew and for the person he was to them. Whenever he spent time with my family, he made the day special for my kids and we shared plenty of laughs. I'll never forget him for those memories and for the uncle he was to my kids. They were always sad to see Frank go home at the end of a fun day. He will be missed but the memories we have with Frank, and his infectious laugh will never be forgotten.

I was fortunate, blessed, lucky and had the good fortune to have such a great boss in Frank Conti. Although I left McCann many years ago he has always stood out as being the best boss I have EVER had. Noone has come close to his genuineness. I remember being told of his great attributes when he came from one area of IPG to my area at McCann. He was beyond patient and I attribute that to his mom and dad who he spoke fondly of. Frank, I pray that all those that love and had the good fortune to know you are comforted in knowing we were blessed by having you in our presence. You are indeed one of kind and I miss you and love you. Love, Ayanna Evans

 

Noelle Britton posted on 7/6/12

It’s going to be hard not to have Frank around. He’s been there for my entire adult hood. He was there as a boss/mentor during my college internship at McCann. He was there when he recommended me for my first post-college position at IPG. He was there as a boss when I came back to McCann. He was there as I got married and started a family of my own. I’ll remember him as a kind, jovial and generous person with the patience of a saint. He never complained as we turned his office into some sort of psychiatrist office or used his guest chair as a kind of confessional. He listened and never wavered in sharing his life stories. I never saw such love from a man as when I saw Frank speak about Donna, the kids and his extended family. If there are two things I can say about Frank is that he loved his family and that EVERYONE loved Frank. I always told him “there is a special place in heaven for you, Frank”. So now as you claim that spot, I hope to be blessed enough to cross paths with you once again. Thanks for not only being a great boss, but also an inspirational friend. Love, Noelle

Frank, You were one of the kindest souls I have met. I recall how you were always concerned about my baby daughter. Every morning you would ask me, 'how's the little one, is she still keeping you awake?' I was amazed when I learnt that all the time you were genuinely concerned about me, and the minor inconveniences of my sleepless nights, you were battling cancer and never did you even once point that out. Always helpful. Always kind, always selfless! I always knew if I didn't know who to ask on the 3rd floor, I could come to you and you would push me in the right direction, however busy you were. I feel blessed to have known you! May you Rest in Peace! Miriam

I worked with Frank for 10 years and he was one of the truly great people at McCann. If I can think of one word to describe Frank it would be genuine. He was a genuinely nice person who was always willing to help anyone who needed it. Frank was a class act in every sense of the word. He always had a positive attitude and a great big smile. I visited with Frank this past February while he was in the hospital and he was his usual self – positive, optimistic and smiling. My heart is very heavy and my sincerest condolences go out to his wife, children, extended family and friends. What a great guy Frank was. He will be sorely missed by all. See you on the other side partner. Sincerely, Sean Quigley

My Dearest Frank, I cannot put into words how much you meant to your family, especially to your brother John and I. You were always there for us with a kind word, a smile or a good hearty laugh. I have so many memories of all the good times we shared and I will cherish them forever. I am grateful my kids, Matthew and Sarah had someone like you to look up to and to have as a role model throughout their lives. If everyone had your attitude and good nature, the world would be a better place. We are a family that comes together in times of need and I hope that we were there for you when you needed us. Every time I sit on the beach reading the newspaper, or eat a bowl of ice cream, or eat Nutella on Italian bread, or drink flat soda, I will think of you! You will live in mine, John, Matthew and Sarah's hearts forever. We love you and will see you again. Love, Fran

Theres a stereotype out there about stepfathers and you always hear the bad so I got a story for you. Frank took my family basically out the ghetto, with two kids, my mother who was 5 years out of losing her husband and brought us into his loving family with no questions asked. Put a roof under our heads, never asked for anything in return. Never asked me to call him "Dad" because he knew about my first father, never wanted new clothes, he chose hand me ups, thought about every single person before himself up until his last breaths on this earth. Taught me to not sweat the small stuff, that theres more in this life then money and flashy things, that we have each other and that its the most important thing God could have given us. He treated my family like gold, was by my side when I got in my car accident and was in the hospital, loved us all equally, worshiped the Lord, never smoked or drank, and was a role model to any father out there if you need to figure out how to be one the right way. I will FOREVER remember the things you have done for me the last 13 years of my life, every single laugh, every concern, every life lesson, and all of the talks we would have on a daily basis about anything from baseball to politics. Frank, you weren't just smart in one specialized field, you knew everything I ever asked. Such a smart man, I hope to one day be the man you were to us 5 to my own children. I know that if I can do that, I will have a loving and caring family that will be by my side in the worst of times just as we were with you the last couple of days. You made my mother the woman she is today and for that I could never repay you. Say hello to grandma and my daddy, your brother Joe and whoever else that is awesome up in heaven. We all love you and although this is going to be the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my entire life, I'm here for all of my family and I know that's what you would want me to do. I love you and I'll see you when my time is up.

Frank, The world has lost a "gem". Our loss is heaven's gain. We all will miss you deeply at McCann. You were, and still are, the salt of the earth. Marie

 

Jeanne Stanton posted on 7/3/12

Dear Frank, I can't sum up 25 years in a couple of sentences, but I will try. You will be missed from McCann, from our hearts and minds. We will always remember your laughter, your generosity, your faith and peace when dealing with anything! You had an uncanny way of knowing what a person needed to hear. You would do anything for a laugh, to make us all feel better. You dealt with your illness with grace and dignity, never asking why. You got the big picture and had gratitude for the time you did have, which can only come from great faith. You made me a better person, as I am sure you did for countless others. I will never forget the lesson you taught me just by being you- the homeless man on Third Avenue that you befriended, because thats who you are. You saw him as a person, a veteran, you didn't just walk by or throw a dollar in. I am sure you are way past the pearly gates today, hanging with your brother, looking out for your family, wife and kids you talked about and loved so much. I will pray for them now, take care and don't listen to Lucy about the Mets, that wouldn't be fair.....really. Put in a good word for us all, see you on the otherside, Jeanne

Frank, I never forget all the good times we shared at the shore, especially that laugh of yours. Your were a wonderful brother-n-law to me, a great brother to Tom, and a devoted uncle to Michael and Jonathan. That smile of yours could light up a room anywhere. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I will miss very much. Love you always, Debbie

 

Lucy Reyes posted on 7/3/12

Frank, You always greeted me and everyone else with the biggest brightest smile regardless of what may have been going at work or in your personal life. You had a way of just finding a positive look to any situation. I loved that about you and your postive energy inspired me. We will all miss you, but the Met fans on our floor will miss you more. Somehow sharing my frustrations about our team will not be the same with anyone else. See what you can do when you get your moment with the "BIG GUY" in heaven. You know we'll need all the help we can get. :-) You're at peace now Frank, hanging with the angels and worry free. Pray and watch over for all of us now. Love you Frank. Until we meet again....

On a recent trip to New York, I passed through Astoria on my way to La Guardia. For some reason, Paul jumped into my mind after many (40 years) of being out of contact. He was such a great man. I remember him from his Pan Am days. I decided to look him up on Facebook, and came across his obituary in my search to say hello. Paul, it was my pleasure to have known you way back when. I wish you had popped in my mind earlier - but I remember your sense of humor, your friendship and your kindness forever! God bless and rest in peace!

Paul and I knew each other for years but re-connectyled in the last few years. He had a desire to pursue his theatrical interests. I led him the way and he was so happy. We took step by step and started with a photographer. He felt he was in the right direction. Apart from that and enjoying his zest, I came to know and like him so very much. He had style and such a fabulous sense of humor. We would chaat in an English accent. I felt he had talent. At least he got a little feel for the business. He was warm, sincere and endearing and I so will miss you , Paul. You were my friend and I savor your beautiful photos that Jim Manley took as I sill at through the whole photo shoot like a stage mother. God Bless you always...I will miss you very much. Suzie

Paul: I remember first meeting you during the summer of 1999. You were strikingly handsome, warm and personable. Our friendship blossomed during my stint at RCCL as you taught me about the industry and always made me laugh with your assessments and observations about different situations. You introduced me to "a little sookie sookie now," and the peace and serenity of your "morning sit" ritual. You were charming and debonair and always looked terrific. Your smile and grace will be greatly missed. You were taken away far too early but your memory will always be cherished. May you truly rest in peace....you will not be forgotten.

I have a lost a friend - we all have lost someone special. Paul was my 'go to buddy' at work - we would talk about work, food and everything in between. We shared so much in common- as did so many with Paul - he was always there for each of us. 'It is what it is' = that was his favorite expression. That might be so, but the void is still there. He is missed.

Maureen Reilly posted on 6/26/12

I met Paul while working at RCCL, since we both worked for Pan Am we had an immediate bond. He spoke the truth whether you wanted to hear it or not, which was one of his traits I will miss. We kept in touch through the years and he was looking forward to spending his spare time at his condo in San Juan. If we all learn anything from Paul's passing it would be that no one is guaranteed tomorrow so we have to live each day like it's our last. R.I.P. Paul, may your beautiful smile shine on in Heaven.

 

Rosemary Luzzi posted on 6/26/12

I am so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was always such fun when he would visit the office - entertaining us with his Italian stories and jokes! Celebrity was fortunate to have such a knowledeable and kind man represent them. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

 

Renee Brenner posted on 6/26/12

I was deeply sad to learn of Paul's passing. Paul was a lovely, gentle man who brought a smile to my face. He was very proud of his Italian heritage and told me he had bought the Rosetta Stone dvd's to learn more Italian. He knew I was jewish but had grown up with best friends who were Italian-American. I kidded him that I was Italian through association. When he would come and visit the office he would always greet me with Italian and yiddish phrases. I told him he could have had a good second career on the Borscht Belt. May he rest in peace.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Paul. He was such a nice person. RIP my friend. I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun Of happy memories that I leave When life is done.

 

Robert Tolster posted on 6/26/12

The first contact I had with Paul was over the phone. I was working at Royal Caribbean in Miami, on the Sales Support team, and he called in one day with an issue requiring assistance. The person he was looking for wasn't available, so I offered my help. "Yeah, OK, why not?", he gruffly, or so I thought, replied. After getting him the answers he needed, he thanked me appreciatively and said he hoped we'd speak again. Since I had been warned by some colleagues to tread lightly (I guess he had a 'reputation'), I wasn't expecting such sincerity. I figured out pretty quickly that beneath that exterior he was, as they say, about as rough as a cream puff. Not long after, I moved to New York and assumed my role as BDM for Long Island. We would run into each other somewhat often, be it at an agency for at a trade or consumer event. He was always friendly, respectful, and supportive to all, no matter what your role or purpose. From time to time we would speak to each by phone, either on our office days or from the car in between sales calls. Our discussions would run the gamut from wondering how to jointly help an agent or agency increase their production for our respective brands to both of us expressing frustrations and commiserating about meeting the daily challenges all sales managers face. He was a great sounding board, and I truly hope that I was able to offer him the same in return. Rest in peace, Paul G, and Godspeed your journey Home. -Tolster man

Although I met Paul a little over a year ago by the pool at Condado del Mar Condominium in Condado, Puerto Rico, I immediately took a liking to him. I am very saddened by his passing. May you rest in peace my friend, we will continue our long conversations when we meet again.

 

Margaret Beggins posted on 6/25/12

Paul and I would talk about how much we liked Astoria. I went to Mater Christi and would reminisce with Paul about the neighborhood. It's still a great place. So many cultures, so much great food. Paul was such a lovely gentleman. It was a priviledge to know and work with him. The travel commnuity will sorely miss him.

 

MINDY LANG posted on 6/25/12

I only knew Paul for a couple of years. He was a very good rep for Celebrity. My husband and I had sailed with him on the Solstice, and he hosted us at his dinner table. He was a lot of fun and very knowledgable. He always gave me a very warm big greeting whenever I saw him at seminars. I feel very bad about his passing, and I will miss him.

 

Columba Calicchio posted on 6/25/12

Paul started as my competition (he was Royal Caribbean; I was Carnival), but ended up my friend. He's the one that called me to say there was an open territory at Royal after Renaissance went under...I hesitated, but he walked & talked me through it. I think after Thierry left, he was glad to have a paesan to work closely with :). Paul had been to my parent's house for dinner. We'd gone out many times to BS about "whatever." He was a straight shooter & his agents either hated or loved him for it! Mostly loved! I wish he had more time to enjoy his place in PR, his retirement but it was not to be. After visiting in the hospital and at home, and seeing the Paul I knew disappear, I knew it was time to go. On my last visit I told him, "I would love for you to wait until I get back from Italy but if you're uncomfortable and have to go...I totally understand." I gave him a kiss good bye and hoped he'd go in peace. I was at a great restaurant overlooking Ravello when I saw the missed call...I knew it was over :(

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Paul's passing. He was our rep for Celebrity and whenever he came to our office or we saw each other at Trade Shows, he always had a smile and a hug.

Paul, our time together was too short. About three years ago I received an email from the new DSM for Celebrity Cruise Line, Paul. I couldn't believe we had the same last name, and I thought, what are the chances he's not related to me? I left a message and he returned the call immediately. What a happy call that was. Our grandfathers were brothers. In short order we realized we were cousins, and became friends immediately. I feel blessed God had us cross paths, and will cherish the memory of the too brief time we got to know one another. Much love.

 

Kathy Circelli posted on 6/24/12

Paul and I met at various industry functions. We really got to know each other when he started to represent Azamara, a product more "upscale". He was also assigned to Long Island. Working for Crystal, Paul would call me and ask how do you handle "so and so" . He was finding some of these agents a little different than some of the ones he was used to! . We got to be great friends and would call eachother up and laugh and laugh over some of the requests he would get! . I truly loved and respected Paul and kept in touch even after he left Celebrity. I called him in March and he came to the phone. That is how I found out he was ill. I was glad Thierry and I were able to see him in April. He couldn't speak but he squeezed our hand and he even smiled. He knew what we were talking about and we put on a funny show for him telling him all the industry gossip. Eunice said that was what he loved! Paul you are on my speed dial in my car. I won't ever remove that. You will be forever in my heart. What a special friend you will always be to me..

Thierry Vuolo posted on 6/23/12

The memories have been flooding in. One of my favorites is how Paul introduced himself to me. We did not know each other but were booked on the same flight to Miami to start 11 days of training at Royal Caribbean/Celebrity Cruises in June 1999. I was sitting in my seat on the American Airlines flight, buckled up and ready to start a new job. I was reading a book and out of nowhere came this face, right in front of mine. He seemed extremely tall and with a thick head of salt-and-pepper hair and he said, "Are you Theresa Delfino?" Out of everyone on that plane he figured out I was the gal who had the Manhattan territory (that he told me he wanted) and from there on - we were buds! We bonded during those 11 days (He was one man with 5 women in that training class) as we were both from the same culture and were borough kids. He always called announcing himself as "your gumbada chief!" If anything was terrific, in Paulie's vocabulary, it was "Hey, sookie-sookie-now!" Each morning, he would be on his balcony having coffee, watching The Today Show and having what even I now call, "The Morning Sit." (I distinctly remembering calling him on the morning of 9/11 as I wanted him to come to my CT house to be safe. He didn't as he felt safe in his home.) I know how much he honored and loved his mother and how he would tell me he missed her every single day of his life since her death so many years ago. He loved talking of his past jobs at Grace Line, Worldspan and DHL. He came to me for advice about switching brands at the cruise line and if it were a good idea. ... He knew business and loved talking about crunching numbers. He came to my home and was the best guest with great stories and he also came to hear me sing when I performed about 1 1/2 years ago. (I was thrilled and honored that he attended.) I could go on and on. I am only sorry that I didn't get to see him but once in April. He was a man of great dignity, humor, intellgence. He didn't suffer fools kindly and I learned a great deal from him. He was my "gumbada chief" and will always remain so. I love you, Paulie! You're now at peace with your beloved mom and sweet dog and the angels (with whom you will be singing, I'm sure).

He will be sorely missed by many of us who used to place distress calls. You could always count on him. At least now he will rest in peace.

 

Diane Valeggia Fisk posted on 6/20/12

I first met Frank when I moved back to Astoria in 1995 - as I would walk my dog Teddy in the Park every day and he walked Cassidy. We didn't get to know each other better until my sister Denise and brother-in-law Dan became good friends with him and he became our plumber. To say his work was excellent is an understatement. Even more so, he was someone you trusted. He was so happy when he married Judy, who I never met but heard so much about. He was so in love with her and her son. This was all so sudden and sad. But I know how life turns on a dime and at least he is not sick anymore and I see him walking with Cassidy and giving her the little treats from his pocket. Walk with God my friend, the loss of your presence will be felt by us all.

...Every moment - I touch things Frank touched. Light switches, bathroom drains, dishwashers, - I was just watering outside with the new spigots Frank instsalled last year-he "loved" his work and did it SO well! Frank was truely devoted to his occupation and shared with the people he saw every day. 20 years ago he was called in on an emergency, and became part of our daily routine, renovatng a 1918 house. (I'm sure we paid for many of his trips to Aspen, but it was well worth it. We heard in detail about all his ski runs.) I remember him telling about the girl he met on his morrning dog walks- turns out she was something special- as was he. Last time we met was on yet another emergency call this February for a 92 year old spinster just out of the hospital with no heat. Frank, though sick showed up- the boiler is still running. Tolerant, compassionate, on his knees with a smile in a 100 year old row house basement or a masion....Frank was the best.

Dearest Gloria (Grandma Reich), You are gone, but will never be forgotten! You were such a dear part of our lives. In one way or another, you touched our hearts. The love and respect that you and Marie shared for 40+ years will always be remembered. Eddie & I will remember you always, with love in our hearts. May the angels guide you straight to heaven, where you will be greeted by my mom Ella. I said a prayer to her and asked that she watch over you. Her reply was, don't worry, Gloria will never be alone. When you arrive in heaven, please give my mom a hug for us! We thank you for your kindness over the years and wish you nothing but peace. God Bless You, Arlene & Eddie Schlegel

In the twenty three years we have lived in Hicksville we have been the recipients of many kindnesses from our neighbors, Rose and Peter Travis. While all of those kindnesses were greatly appreciated, sometimes it is the little things in life which can be of greatest value, and, resonate the longest. For many years, walking my children to and from school, passing the Travis house was one of the little delights of the day. Peter was often outside, working about the yard, and when we passed he always gave us a warm "hello" and exchanged a few friendly words. Sometimes there were small, funny little gifts. It was a nice way to send the kids off for the day and a nice way to welcome them home. What was likely a very small and natural thing for him to do made for happy moments, and happy memories for our family. Peter was a sweet and gentle man and he will be both remembered and missed. - Emily, Peter, Gabe, Jerusha and Kit

I am devestated by this loss. I spent many of my childhood years with Dean, he always treated me as a little sister when we were younger. We fought often and laughed even more often. We lost touch as we got older and I moved away, but I will never forget him and his huge bubbly personality. I know how much he meant to everyone who knew him. He will be missed, but the memories of Dean will live on forever. RIP Dean.

I remember going to Kallimasia for the first time in 1970, when I was 4 years old. And I remember the first face I recognized in this strange new place - Pete's. I remember a big blue Buick Skylark, and how Pete drove with his hand in his lap and one thumb on the bottom of the steering wheel. I remember how surprised I was as a kid when Pete grew his moustache. I remember when Pete and his family moved from Jackson Heights to a house right around the corner from us. I remember many Easters and Thanksgivings in that house. I remember Pete working in the same office as my father. I remember a friendly, good-natured man who loved his family and was generous to those around him. I remember Pete. "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." Psalm 73:26

I have a great many memories of Peter. He was always a kind, caring and patient. He possessed a vast amount of knowledge on so many subjects. I shared an office with him for a few years and he taught me a lot, we talked about nearly everything. His mind was sharp and he was constantly tinkering with something or other... when he wasn't terribly busy with work {which wasn't often as he did so very much - more than a chief Estimator ordinarily would}, he kept himself occupied with workshops or math questions. He used to make up math problems for my kids, and have me send them home and see how long it took to figure out the answer. =) My kids adored him too. My youngest would run up and hug and squeeze him when I brought them to the office. One thing that Peter always did, was whistle. Not a song, but just one two notes. a short low and a long sustained high note. {you can see that i am no musician here...} On a good day i would hear that note over and over many times throughout the day, even on not such good days i would hear it once or twice... but i always listened for it, and smiled. it was a happy sound. When Peter was out of the office, I was still listening for it... I still find myself expecting to hear it in the quietest parts of the day... Peter was so much more than my boss, he was my friend, he was my family, He was a truly a great man. Peter was very dear to me and will always be in my heart.

May she rest in peace and may we meet each other again. It was my honor to have known Margarita.

Deepest sympathies to the relatives and friends of our dear George Vujnovich! He was a hero to me many times over.... these are the words I hope the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette will include in their special obituary tribute to his incredible deeds. "He was great by choice, but humble. We were lucky to have him for so long to continue to guide us as an exemplary role model. He had the intelligence, courage, drive, and willingness to take a stand. There's an old proverb that says, 'If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.' With his 'can do' mind set, he had a vision that others didn't see and made the rescue of over 500 U.S. airmen happen. Like a wizard alchemist, he forged the believers and the naysayers together into a team and turned an extremely dangerous situation into gold (Freedom). He did exceptional service for our country. "Personally, I will never forget how he traveled from his apartment in New York to Washington, DC via a taxi, the train, and taxi again to the House of Representatives hall for an important Congressional caucus for the Serbian people, all the while in a wheelchair at 93 then! He's a hero to me many times over!" Memory Eternal! Like Gregory Freeman says, "Gone, but never forgotten."

Dear Tommy and Gary, Our deepest sympathies in the passing of your mom. I have known your mom my entire life. I don't know if you remember me. I live at 23 14 28th Street, the big yellow apartment house near the corner next to Dr. Kassapidis'. My wife and I were shocked to hear of your moms passing. For the past month or so I would say to my wife " I wonder how is Agatha, I haven"t seen her in some time? She would always be at the front door and I would always see her in the afternoon when I came home from work. Often I would park my car in front of her house and I would stop and talk to her and catch up on the local street news and gossip. She was a wonderful lady, as was your dad a wonderful man. As I get older and living on 28th street for 66 years it's so sad that we are losing our old time neighbors. Mary Grasso, and Johnny Grasso a short time ago, Lilly Devino from across the street to name a few. Just to let you guys know your mom will always be remembered as a wonderful lady and will not be forgotten. When ever I pass your moms house I will always think of her and vision her at the gate. Our sincerest condolences, John & Anna Agoropoulos

Our deepest sympathy to the Panissidi family. We'll miss her standing by her gate as we walk pass greeting each other. Mom would alway comment on how our girls (Asha & Kayla) have grown. We'll alway remember the times when we were kids sitting in front of the stoop and played all those silly games (box ball, stoop ball, truth dare, etc), and all the parents (Panissidis', Davenos', Becoccis', etc) sitting in thier beach chairs. "Tommy, Gary those were the days, will always miss them". Love you all. We'll miss mom. May her rest in peace.

I was so sorry to learn of the passing of your mom. The last time I saw her was at my dads funeral. I was very young. What I remember of your mom was that she was one of the most beautiful woman that I ever met. She was very gentle, kind,and always smiling. Your dad , use to throw me up on his shoulders and give me rides on 44 street. I'm sorry that we never met. I have no idea why.My good friend Micheal is a priest and he was kind enough to dedicate a mass to my aunt, your mother. God Bless you and your sister.

I'd know Gloria since 1986. She used to call me in college to make sure her son Anthony was OK. By Easter 1987 she seemed so worried and missed Anthony so much, I decided to surprise her. I drove Tony all the way home from Buffalo to Astoria for the Easter break. She was thrilled. I remember when she asked me to take pictures of Joann's H.S. graduation. Later, when Tony was doing the summer Geology camp requirement for his degree, she'd call me often just to see if I'd heard from him and to talk because she missed him. I suggested she take Amtrak to Rochester and stay with me so she could be there when I picked him up from the airport. She stayed in Rochester the remainder of the week. She loved her kids and was very proud of them.

Dear Aunt Ann, Billy and Jeanette. A little part of me died on April 3rd when Uncle Bill passed away. I can remember all those trips we took as kids to places like Pumps Park, Washingtonville and other places that I can no longer remember their names but the memories are still strong in my brain. I can remember when Mom's car broke down and we all piled into Uncle Bill's Dodge Charger for the ride home. There are so many other times we had so much fun together. I wish I could be there to say my final goodbye but I'm sure he knows how I feel. Rest In Peace Uncle Bill.

Dear Aunt Ann, Billy and Jeanette, I am so sorry I cannot be with you. I'm guessing that Uncle Bill already has a card game going with my dad, brother, Uncle Jimmy and maybe even Aunt Joanie! Much love to you all, Kaye

Although we only met the one time that both of you visited us in Ireland, which was almost forty years ago, we have cherished memories of the special person that Mary(Ellen) was and the great feeling of kindred that we felt. My formative memories were small photographs in black and white of her Graduation and I remember in particular how absolutely beautiful she looked. It seems somehow incongruous and against the natural order that she should have left us so soon. Time passes so quickly and we can only mark it by the significant and personal happenings that shape our memories. Joe you have our sympathies and even though the miles separate us we are with you and your daughters in spirit at this difficult time and pray that you will have the strength to bear the grief of this parting with courage and fortitude.

MY uncle was a very kind hearted man. He always took the time with us when we came up to visit our family in New York . He introduced me to everyone and always mentioned we were from Oklahoma. I think he enjoyed telling people that I was from Oklahoma. My favorite time was when Joe and I met him at the Trump Plaza job site and he showed me around like I was the vip that day. To him , I probably was that day. I love you all and you are in my prayers.

To Billy's family: I am a friend of Billy's. I met him through Mary Tabachnick. Mary was my grandmother's best friend when they were growing up in Atlanta and has remained a dear friend of the family. When my husband, Dale, and I lived in NY from 2001-2005 we spent a lot of time with Mary and Billy. Even in their old age, they were such a fun couple. I just found out about his death and wanted to send my condolences. He was truly a wonderful man. Dale and I adored him. He took such great care of Mary. He was like her guardian angel. He was also very kind to us. I am afraid that chivalry has died with Billy. I just had to tell somebody how fond we were of him and how much we will miss him. It is rare for a person of his caliber to walk on this earth. Sincerely, Jennifer Berkowitz

My deepest sympathy to you and your family. My God grant you the serenity and peace that you need to get throught this.

Renato--You have been a truly devoted and loving son to your dear Mother. You have shared many stories and conveyed her true essence to me. She must have been an amazing woman. People leave a legacy in the world through their children and grandchildren. I'm sure she is proud to have had a son like you. May you and your family be comforted by G-d in this difficult time.

Dear Susan and Louisa I have so many fond memories of your mother from my childhood. I always remember her as kind and welcoming. I remember too the cherry tree in your backyard that was always good for a climb. I recall how your mother seemed to enjoy all of us playing in your yard. I live about 80 miles North, if I can get there, I will try to do so. WArmly Ken Doka

My Condolenses go out to the family of Maria Klappas. I'm so sorry for the loss of someone dear to you. It is hard to go through hardships like this, but something encouraging to know is what the Bible says in the book of John 5:28,29. It gives us the hope that soon we will be able to be with our passed loved ones again! Wouldn't that be very nice?

I met Lourdes over fifteen years ago when I started my career with Mcgraw-Hill and she became my pillar at work and with my family. She saw my daughters grow and will always wisely advice me. We shared so many laughs as well as tears when I lost my mother. For Lourdes her daughter and husband where her greatest treasure and love. I will truly miss you my dear friend. Heaven has a beautiful angel who will always take care of her loved ones.

I have known Lourdes and her family for over 40 years, I attended her wedding and her mother planned her baby shower and Maria's and Evita's at my home in Queens. Lorena's birth must have been the happiest day of her life. Lourdes live for her family. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. I like to share with the family, in particular Jose and Lorena, a poem that I recently read on the subway on my way to Queens. Having faced a similar sorrow myself, it has given me hope that we'll see our dear ones again : HEAVEN : It will be the past and we'll live there together Not as it was "to live" but as it is remembered It will be the past we'll all go back together Everyone we ever loved, and lost, and must be remember It will be the past And it will last forever.

Lourdes was one of the kindest souls I've ever met. She will truly be missed by her family and friends. I am so grateful that she found my phone number and we chatted right before Thanksgiving. She will be missed but heaven just gained another angel.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Lourdes. What a beautiful women inside and out. I had worked with her at McGraw-Hill for about 19 years and she was the sweetest women every. So helpful to me at work and always so proud to swap stories with me about our daughters. This earth has lost an angel.

My thoughts and sympathies are with Rosetta, Rosaria, Maria and their families and all the Di Grande extended family. Santo was a kind, soft spoken man. I have fond memories of him, Aunt Josie, Nancy and all of the Di Grande brothers and their families from time spent as a child in Astoria many years ago. Sending you love - Jane Giliberto

 

Dennis Howard posted on 1/2/15

My deepest sympathies to the DiGrande family. I first met Santo at a celebration of my son Tom's approaching marriage to Santo's granddaughter Stefanie. Although his recent memories were already failing, he remembered every detail of his childhood memories of the Allied invasion of Sicily. He lived in a small village just over the hill from where the Americans landed, and needless to say, the place was bombed to pieces. At the time, I was a 12 year-old following the war on the maps that appeared in the daily NY Sun, and he and I were able to swap notes on our recollections of that awful time. It was like old friends meeting after 72 years of separation. He was a beautiful man and I was glad to get to know him, and happier still that Tom and Stefanie were carrying on both of our family traditions. It's quite a combination - Irish and Italian -- but a very Catholic one as well. Now Tom and Stefanie have another Grandpa watching out for them as they move on through their life together. Santo can be their very own patron saint.

 

Anne Howard posted on 1/2/15

We have only known Santo for a short time since his granddaughter married our son. We are so happy to have had the privilege of knowing this sweet gentleman. He and my husband chatted about WWII, can you believe? My husband was a school boy reading about the Allied invasion of Sicily in St. Mary's School in Queens in 1944 while Santo was a child living in one of the towns being invaded. The Lord has mysterious ways of bringing people together. Rosetta, our prayers and thoughts will be with you all during this sad and difficult time. Rosaria and Maria and Stefanie, our tears are for you too.

 

Monica Antonio posted on 1/2/15

My deepest, deepest condolences to Rosaria and the entire Di Grande Family. May your Dad rest in eternal peace with our Father in Heaven. Amen.

On Sunday morning we all woke up to a crappy rainy day thinking about Arthur all day. Around 1:30-2:00 pm when the wake was to start the SUN came out! And everyone knows that when the sun comes out there is a smile on your face. As if you ran into Arthur somewhere he would always put a smile on your face. Sorry I was unable to attend but in heart and spirit I was there. I remember watching people slide on the JUST WAXED floor at the shore house and HOT FOOTS (you know who you are LOL)! Just a GREAT GUY may you rest in peace .... much condolences to the family. Ed Roubal

Arthur was (is) a "Light Bringer"...a Gift Bringer (Smiles). You could not be around him for more than one second without him trying to make you laugh or smile... He Always succeeded. I thank God for having had our paths cross in this lifetime and pray to God that his Soul manages to find me again in the next part of our journey. ...To The Connolly family ( some of the most wonderful people on the planet) I send my deepest condolences, Love and Prayers. I would ask them to try their hardest to think of Arthur now and always with a smile ...not a tear..he would truly want it that way....and to know that our Loved ones never really leave us...they just move on a bit ahead and....wait.
