Cousin Dante,

I'm here flipping through some old pictures and have come to a few of you and i was thinking about how much everyone misses you. It brought back a myriad of memories of us as kids. Wrestling in the pool, you always telling me if I ever needed anything at all to call you and just always being a loving cousin and acting like another big brother. I miss you cousin and know your always around and watching over your family.

Love Always,

Mike R

Dear Dante,
I remember your voice, your smile, your laugh, how much you cared about us, loved us.. I remember your good heart, how you helped people, the way you lit up a room, wanted everyone to be happy, the things you enjoyed.. I remember everything about you. And today on the eighth year you are in Heaven, I send my love to you. I know we were blessed to have shared our time with you...I hope you know what an incredible light you have left behind.

Until we all meet again.
Love and miss you always,
Love,
Auntie

Oh Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works
Thy hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art


And When I think, of God,
His son not sparing,
Sent Him to die,
I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden
gladly bearing He bled and died
to take away my sin

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
With humble adoration
And then proclaim My God
How great Thou art

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

In loving memory of our Dante called Home to be with God seven years ago. Love you forever. Missing you always. Until we see you again.

Love Auntie and all your loving family.

Hi Dante,
On this last day of the Easter Season I'm sending you our love. No words can describe what life is without you, an ache in missing you that grows so much deeper with time. But you are in God's Heavenly Home, where there is no time or space between meeting, no aching hearts, only sunshine, and seashores, and smiles, and flowers, and family, and finally, the everlasting peace we will all feel when we meet again.
I love and miss you so,
Love, Auntie

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in our Dante's arms
and tell him they're from me.

Tell him that we love him so,
and when he turns to smile,
place a kiss upon his cheek
and hug him for awhile.

Tell him we remember everything,
He's in our thoughts each day,
The memories lie within our hearts
Where they will forever stay.

Happy Valentine's Day in Heaven Dante!
Love Always,
Auntie

October 31, 2011
Dear Dante,

We are given many gifts as we go through life. Some we are allowed to enjoy for a long time, others only briefly.

Each gift has the power to change us, enrich us, to make us better people.

In my sadness I miss you,

And then I thank God for the gift of you,

And the joy that came in having such a person to love.

You are in my heart today and every day.

I love and miss you always,

When Marla told me that she bumped into your wonderful parents at the cementary yesterday, I knew once again, that I don't believe in coincidences. They had a nice reunion with you Dante by their sides smiling of course, enjoying every minute. Marla came back afterwards to my house and shared with me this reunion. It brought tears to my eyes. I'm praying for your parents and that their peace will be sustained knowing that heaven is your home. Now that Marla is married, please watch over her daily and aid in her happiness, great health, future children, and her peace. Thank you.

FAITH

You will not see me so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to its fullest.

And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart...I will be there.

Do not remember a song by its duration
Nor by the number of its notes
Remember it by the richness of its contents
Sometimes those unfinished are the most poignant...

Do not remember a song by its duration
Nor by the number of its notes
Remember it by the way it touches and lifts the soul
Sometimes those unfinished are the most beautiful...

And when something has enriched your life
And when its melody lingers on in your heart

Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?

I forever hear the music of your life.
For it so deeply sang in mine.
I miss you and love you Dante.
We all miss you so much.

Just awhile ago I saw your face
Held you tight
Cannot erase the smile of you, the loving heart
My godson sweet, we did not part.

You're here with me as my day's begun,
Throughout my life, the morning sun
If time goes on, then time stands still
We'll meet again, yes, meet we will

And tho you rest on splendid shore, in Heaven's glorious paradise
I cannot help my teary eyes
Because I miss you so.

I saw you just awhile ago
Your happy heart, your smile aglow
You're here Dante,
You are not gone,
Your love and you
Still live on.

I miss you more today than yesterday.

Dearest DANTE,
"For everything there is an appointed season, and a time for everything under Heaven
A time for sharing,
A time for caring,
A time for loving,
A time for giving,
A time for remembering,
A time for parting.

You have made everything beautiful in its time for everything you do remains forever."

We miss you more as time goes by
sometimes we can't stop crying. But
you are here
in every memory of Christmases past and in every season.
You made our lives beautiful in your time, and everything you did especially how you loved us
remains forever.

Merry Christmas in Heaven sweet godson.
Until we meet again
We love and miss you so.

It doesn't matter how many years have passed. I still miss you. I always will. And that's ok. I'm so happy and grateful that I had you in my life. I've realized over all this time that as much as I don't want to, I would rather have to deal with the great pain of missing you and dealing with you being gone, than not ever having you in my life at all.....but it doesn't make it any easier still....I'm just happy that I was lucky enough and that God picked you to be in my life. I would much rather miss you with all my heart than never know you at all. You still remain such a strong presence in my life, no matter what. Thank you for being there in my life when I needed you. I miss you so much still. I will ALWAYS LOVE you.
I MISS YOU.
Love,
Marla

To all of us here who have to wait to see you while you are in Heaven with God, Proverbs 3 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."
May 30, 2009
Dante,
It just doesn't seem possible that all of this has happened. I try to be strong for myself, for everyone- but the truth is,as Albert said "this world will never be the same".. it is so hard to be without you. We miss you so much, we miss so many things about you especially your great big heart and all the precious things you said and did to let us know how much you loved us. I go over it in my mind again and again and I hope you know how much we love you and think of you every day and always. I keep thinking of the Eric Clapton song "Tears In Heaven". It keeps playing in my head, days, months, years may go by, it's true how "time can bring you down, time can bend your knees, time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please..." but I have faith and more..it ends beautifully: "Beyond the door, there is peace I'm sure, and I know there'll be no more Tears in Heaven."

We all believe that.
See you there.
Love always and forever,
Auntie, Uncle, Albert, Christina xoxoxo

Dear Karen and Martin,

Cherish the memories of Dante's life on earth as he lives on in each of them and in you.
God Bless
May 29, 2009

As I sit here praying...
I think you are saying,

Dearest Family,

"As you hold me close in memory,
even though we are apart,
my spirit will live on,
there within your heart...
I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.
When you lean on trusted friends,
and their caring hugs enfold you,
within their loving arms,
I'll be there to hold you...
I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.
And beyond the far horizon,
when we'll finally be together,
where love is eternal
and life will last forever...
I'LL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS."

I love and miss you so.
Auntie

In the rising of the sun and
in its going down,
We remember them;

In the blowing of the wind and
in the chill of winter,
We remember them;

In the opening of the buds and
in the warmth of summer,
We remember them;

In the rustling of leaves and
the beauty of autumn,
We remember them;

In the beginning of the year and
when it ends,
We remember them;

So long as we live, they too shall live,
For they are now a part of us as
We remember them.

Happy Birthday Dante. I miss you man
November 02, 2008
My dearest Dante,

my voice has been stilled
by the pain of parting
life is out of balance
since you've gone
special days like your birthday
make missing you
that much harder
and I realize that only faith will sustain me.

I hope you know the lovely place you hold in my heart
and the sweetest memories of you that I carry with me

you left an indelible mark on me

your footprints cannot ever be matched

Happy birthday in Heaven, Dante
I love you and miss you so..

Love,
Auntie xo

Happy Birthday in heaven. You are missed so greatly. You have touched so many lives.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

August 30, 2008
Long ago I use to carry you on my shoulders in the park with your aunt. You had the widest smile and the greatest laugh. Those were very happy times. I hope to God that you have found the same peace now that you had back then.
August 21, 2008

Time has pasted but you are still in my heart. I will never forget you and how much i loved you in middle school!
Look over your family and friends and give us strenght to go on, you will always be in my heart and we wll always have our song that still makes me cry when i hear it!
I miss you, Andrea

I miss you more and I miss you still. You will absolutley never leave me, but so will the sadness I have from missing you every day. But I look forward to the day I get to see you again, and I can absolutley not wait!! But in the meantime I know you're watching over me with love and your big beautiful smile that Imiss so much. I just still can't believe it's been this long. I really miss you so so much Dante. You showed me a whole new world of loveand I am so glad for whatever way God found to bring you into my life. I would not trade every single thing we ever went through in the whole world, just as long as I had you in my life. You permanently touched me, and I WILL FOREVER HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF LIFE. Thank you for all the blessings you left all of us here with. I love you more than I feel like I can even say, I will always miss you, and you will ALWAYS be with me every single day of my life in my heart. Thank you, Dante, for everything. I love you.

The days are long because we miss him,

And I see his smiling face.

I pray for you and your Mom and Dad every day, Dante.
I love and miss you more than words can say.

Happy Valentines Day
February 14, 2008
If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me
Place them in our Dante's arms
And tell him they're from me
Tell him how we love and miss him
And as he turns to smile
Place somes kisses on his cheek
And hug him for awhile.

Dante,
You are in my heart on Valentine's Day and every day.
Love and miss you so,
Auntie
February 11, 2008
Just thinking of you, I look at your picture everyday. I remember how you impacted me. I will never forget you. I wish things were different, I could switch with you, or atleast have you back with us. I hope you are at peace now, and we will meet again cous, I'll never forget.

The Next Room

"Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be the household word it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
All is well."

by Harry Scott Holland

I see you every day in the corners of my mind. I always will Dante. Life is eternal. Love is immortal; death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing, save the limit of our sight.

I love and miss you so.
Auntie

November 03, 2007
My dearest Dante,
On the day you came into this world, a beautiful star dropped from the sky and landed in your heart.
You carried this wondrous light within your soul, and as you grew older it began to shine brighter making the world a happier place.
I think you were amazing, truly unique in your kindness and loving heart.
With each passing day, I realize how truly blessed I am to have had you in my life. You touched the hearts of those around you, sharing the incredible gift of you and making me so proud to be your godmother.

I miss you more than words can say. The promise of heaven is what sustains me.

God bless beautiful you, Dante. Happy 26th birthday in Heaven.
You are forever loved.

"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next..."
Dante, one year has passed and you still teach me so much...you are still in all our hearts.
May 29, 2007
~We look at the night sky in the quiet of darkness and they are never far. Those we have loved and cherished, those who have changed our lives in some small or profound way are closer than we know... it is their light that shines on our world. It is the brilliance of their souls that makes our night sky glow. Those we have loved shine on.
May your peace shine down upon us and give us strength, Dante. This separation is temporary; our reunion is promised by God; we will one day share His love together, and eternal joy with you forever.
May 27, 2007
Being with your family and friends today celebrating your life was amazing. you are remembered by all dante. your mom got this beautiful bracelet that she was wearing so proudly. her and your dad invited us all over for "coffe and" but I should have known... it was a wonderful feast of cavatelli, sausage and peppers, roasted peppers and so much more we were all the time sharing wonderful stories about you, laughing and crying... she showed me a garden that her and your dad put in memory of you. just being there, sitting on the couches we used to sit on to watch tv and hang out brought back so many memories. i miss you so much and there isnt a day that goes by that i dont think of you. your in my heart every second of every day. i <3 u. julie

Dear Dante,
Sometimes I beg God to change the day, wipe all my miss you tears away, the instant you were here then gone, how do we still carry on?
I know you're in the sun, the sky, each thought and prayer, all days gone by, never forgotten, always in sight, first thoughts in the morning, last thoughts at night, smiling in Heaven, heart brighter than gold, each memory I treasure will never grow old.
You are here in my heart though it aches time and again, I carry you with me until we meet again. God bless you and keep you until we all meet again.
Love and miss you so.

You mom and I speak of you often. We imagine you and James entertaining all of the heavenly host. The joy that you brought on earth fills the heavens. As you look down on your mom, dad, family, and friends know that they miss you more than words can say.
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting you but, feel I have through the words of your mom and dad. Through them, you "live" on. . .
May 15, 2007
Almost a year.. I think of you daily.. sometimes I wish what life would be like if you didnt leave us so soon. my <3 always.
May 15, 2007
I can't believe it 15 long days it will be 1 year since you left us. It's still hard to believe. Everyone misses you. I can't imagine what your parents are feeling. I miss you so much!
May 14, 2007
This month is a difficult month for everyone that knew you. In 16 short time it'll be one year. Not one day has gone by since that horrible day that you haven't crossed my mind. I wish that I could have said goodbye to you, and for that I am sorry. I wish that your parents didn't have to experience this and you could be with us today. I have learned something from this...appreciate your family and your true friends because anything can happen in this world...and show your love to them at all times because there may not be a tomorrow. I love and miss you cuz. Until we meet again, rest in peace.

As everyone gathers with their families you will be in everyones thoughts and prayers. Your smile will never be forgotten or the warmth of your presence. Your an angel watching over everyone.

I love you
December 23, 2006
My Godson Dante,
You were a gift from God
A treasured piece of who we are
And if we are different people now
It's only because we don't know
How to live our lives without you.

But we will not live without you Dante
For we have the gift of memory
And we live in the Faith
That you are also God's gift in Heaven
We know that you shine in His Glory
And share in His Peace.

So as we gather together, remember..
You are with us this Christmas
You smile at our table
You stand tall by our tree
And by the Grace of God
You'll shine down on us
Until we meet again
For all eternity.

Dante, we love and miss you so.
Auntie, Al, Christina and Albert xoxoxo

Memories are always there to hook us, to make the grief fresh again - birthdays, anniversaries, summer vacation - any occasion of "the first time around" without our loved one. But the Christmas holidays, when the whole world seems poised for celebration, are among the most difficult times of year for survivors of loss. Each of us has a time-honored list of things "we always do" - go to services, hang the stockings, light the candles, share traditional foods. They are part of our identity and our joy in being alive in the world together - and now one of the key people with whom we shared that joy is gone. Is it any wonder we cringe from the thought of the holidays?
We will get through it, and probably better if we can talk about it with others who are feeling the same loss.

I know this will be a hard season for me. I will take one day at a time. I will acknowledge when grief hovers close. And I will try to be open to times when joy may surprise me, too.
-Healing After Loss

I love you so much Dante..
November 30, 2006

I can still see your smile and feel your love all the way from Heaven.

Dante,
Happy 25th Birthday.. You were such an amazing person. I remember this like it was yesterday and can still hear your voice saying this to me. It was about 2 minutes after midnight, we were on the phone and you said to me sweetheart "happy birthday" It shocked me so much since you and I didnt know each other that well and you remembered me telling you my birthday was that day. I seen you later that night and we got to know each other better and you were and still are a caring and loving person. you were and still are loved by many. love always
me
November 03, 2006
Dear Dante. Today is your birthday and I celebrate the legacy you left behind. You were such a warm and caring young man. In such a short time here, you touched the lives of many…a testament to your character. We all miss you terribly but find some comfort now in the fact that you are in peace with the Lord. As you did on earth, continue to care and watch over your mom and dad. Love, Cousin Donna

Dear Dante,
Something happened on the day of your birth,
a bit of sunlight slipped to earth,
and scattered its rays on the days we'd know,
and glazed each one with a gentle glow.
For 24 years your light and your smile,
graced our lives, all the while..
and the difference you made,
to each heart you embraced,
is your legacy Dante, it can't be erased.
So, today on your birthday as your light shines above,
we treasure your memory, and send you our love.

We miss you so much and love you with all our hearts forever, Auntie, Al, Christina, Albert xoxoxo
November 02, 2006
Tomorrow is your twenty-fifth birthday Dante, and I wish you were still here with us. For the twenty-four years you were with us, you were such a good kid. When we were younger, I always looked up to you and tried to do a lot of the things you did. Even when we became adults, I was always up for hanging out with my cousin and I was proud to have you in my family. Not a day goes by that I don't think about all the great times we had while you were here. Now that I'm in Florida, I can't visit you. I hope you know that I'm sorry Dante. Watch over your parents, and help them enjoy the rest of there time on earth until you see them again. Aunt Karen and Uncle Martin, when tomorrow comes, just remember that Dante was a great individual, and that's why he was loved by the thousands of people that came to see him. There is not a person that I know that could've come close to having that affect on that many people except Dante. Just know that I love you guys and I miss you a lot.
October 08, 2006
every day i still cry and feel more lost without you. i don't have the chance to share everything that goes on in my day with you anymore. i look at rocky and think of you and it hurts so much but i thank god for him everyday and wouldn't trade anything in the world for him b/c he's another reminder of the love we had and all the memories w/ him. my favorite memory is when we were in florida together and everything felt so perfect, and i long soo much to have that back. i keep thinking about when i'll actually get to see you again, and that will be the best day of my life. i cannot wait to see you and be with you and talk to you and hug you again, and i know someday we will. i love you dante. i cannot wait to see you again.
October 03, 2006
Dear Dante,
You are always in our thoughts and prayers. We will never forget your smile. Your spirit will always "shine" around all your family and friends who love you deeply. God Bless Karen, Marty and Dante.
Love,
Dave, Laurie, David and Lauren
September 03, 2006
Dear Dante,
It has been 3 long months since you have passed. How lost I feel without you here. I can't believe how much my life has changed since you have been gone. To not hear your voice and to not see you is torture, but all I have to do is close my eyes and there you are right before me forever emblazened in my mind. I miss you every minute of every day and I love you as if you were still on this Earth. Please watch over my baby Dante. I know you are watching over him and I am sure that you are teaching him the things that made you such a beautiful person. I love you. XOXOX
August 29, 2006
Dear Dante,
It is hard to believe that August 30th marks the third month of our lives without you. How lost we are. We have never known such pain.
Today we remembered again the beauty you brought to our lives...your passion for life and your heart so giving. We can still see your eyes and feel the warmth of your smile, all your love and pride for your family. So as we weep, we must also thank God for the 24 years He gave us to love you. Thank you for loving us all so much in return! And I was blessed to be your godmother! Al and I, Christina and Albert all love you. We were blessed to be loved by you, and to share our lives with you. And we miss you so much it is unbearable.
I miss you Dante. I miss your big smile and your big hugs and your kiss on my cheek. I miss your telephone calls, even the one minute ones that said "Hi, auntie, what's up..how are the kids..call you back later." But you are with me every day and always, Dante..in my heart and in my mind, in a photograph or memory, in a laugh or a cry, in flowers and sunshine, in clouds and the rain. You will be with all of us today, tomorrow, and always because that's what love is. Love is for always.
All my love forever,
Auntie Kathy

Dante,
It's been more then 2 months since you've passed. I think about you all the time. It's so hard to believe that god chose to take you from us. I will never forget our many talks. Your memory will help keep me strong. I know you are in heaven looking down on us all. You are at peace. Until we meet again.
Love always,
Jen

Dante,
It's been a long 2 months without you. I would never wish this pain of losing a loved one on anyone. I still feel so lost without you. All I know is that your up there smiling down on us all. I love you and miss you so much. With each passing day, you will never be forgotten. I love you. XOXOX

Dear Karen and Marty,
Dante touched so many lives- as have his mother and father. (I wonder where Dante got that gift!) It was so evident as scores and scores of people came to share their sympathy and prayers, their faith and friendship.
We pray and sincerely believe that God will continue to uphold you, love you, carry you, walk beside, behind, and in front of you. He'll guide and guard you, and He'll be there for you in the love of your family and the care and concern of your friends. He will "give us this day our daily bread" each day, every day, one day at a time. "Walk with God", my friends, as we walk with you.
July 13, 2006
My dearest Dante,
I miss you more with each passing day.
All my love forever,
Auntie

And then one or another dies. And we think of this love as cut short; like a dance stopped in mid career or a flower with its head unluckily snapped off – and something truncated and therefore, lacking its due shape. I wonder. If, as I can’t help suspecting, the dead also feel the pains of separation (and this may be one of their purgatorial sufferings). Bereavement is a universal and integral part of our experience of love. It is not a truncation of the process, but one of its phases; not the interruption of the dance, but the next figure. We are “taken out of ourselves” by the loved one while he is here. Then comes the tragic figure of the dance in which we must learn to be still taken out of ourselves though the bodily presence is withdrawn and not fall back to loving our past, or our memory, or our sorrow, or our relief form sorrow, or our own love.
July 03, 2006
Karen and family,
I was shocked to see your Card of Thanks in the paper on July 2. Although our paths have not crossed in several years I remember your unconditional love for your son Dante. We go way back to the "Little Learners" years.As you journey through this most difficult time in your lives, may time, friends and family continue to sustain you and comfort you.
Sincerely, Marcia Vallese
June 28, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Dear Karen & Marty, My most heartfelt sympathy is with you at this very sad time in your lives. Dante was such a fun child at Little Learners. My son Justin had many good times with him there. You are two excellent parents and brought up a fine boy. In his too short life he touched many peoples hearts. May you find some comfort in your faith knowing that he is in a better place with the Lord. I will keep you in my prayers that you may find some solace in the days ahead. Karen I"ve known you for many years and when I need guidance you lended an unselfish and helping hand opening up you home and family to my daughter, Kristen. That is something I will never forget. You are a wonderful person and have so much to give to the children of the world.
God Bless You Both

Dante, you were my closest cousin, and this killed me. We had some good times going out, at the family dinners and holidays, and I was proud to have you as a cousin. Carrying your casket was the hardest thing I ever had to do, but then I realized that you were in a better place, and I felt a little better. Your death has been hard on me, but so much harder on Aunt Karen and Uncle Martin. Give them the strength to get through this and enjoy the remainder of their lives. I love you Dante, you had such a big heart, I know you would've done anything for me, as I would've for you. I wish I could've squashed our little problem, I hope you know that I love ya man. Rest in peace Dante until we meet again.
June 07, 2006
Dante,
I miss you so much and I love you.I hold our memories close to my heart and you will forever be my first love.You took a piece of me with you when you left this earth, but I know now that you are safe and free from pain.I love you so much.Until we meet again.I love you Sinatra.

Dear Miss Karen & Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. The first time I met Dante was at Little Learners he was always smiling and he would look at me with those big eyes. He was such a happy child. My son Dominic loved you Miss Karen you were the best teacher he ever had. He is so sad for you that you have to suffer this way. Dominic enjoyed playing with Dante so many years ago. Although he was younger than Dante he would see him around school at Cranston West and Dominic said that Dante was always making the kids laugh and that he had such a great personality that all the kids loved him. The last time I saw Dante was at Dave & Busters when we took my 17 year old step son there. My step son has to lie down in a special wheel chair due to Muscular Dystrophy and most people just stare at him, but not Dante. Dante came up to him and started talking to him and made him feel like a real person. My step son said to me “who was that boy, he is so nice, nobody his age has ever talk to me like that, I wish more young people were like him”. I am sure that Dante has touched many people during his short life. He will be missed by many. Just know that you can turn to God in your time of grief. The bible tells us at Psalm 34:18 “God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves”. Pray to God and he will help you cope with the death of Dante.

June 03, 2006
Dante was a very good friend to me, we shared so many good times and memories together. To me, I'll always remember him as a person of great energy, spontinaiety, with a heart of gold and a sense of humor and personality to match. This news is very shocking and devastating to hear of. I would just like to send out my deepest condolences to his parents and family...he will be deeply missed.
June 03, 2006
I'm not even sure where to begin because this is something that I
never believed would happen. It feels like not that long ago we walked across the stage and graduated high school or we were sitting in Mrs. Dicenso's office just wasting time not to return to class. Its been a while since I seen him last, but I won't forget the crazy times we had in school & when he would visit me at the Shell station, where I worked for a car wash. In 2005 while I was in search for a new car, I went into Shannon Motors & there he was. That was the last I saw of him.He will be missed, but all of the good times will always be remembered. My condolances go out to his family & all of those who are affected by this loss.
June 03, 2006
We love you and will always think of you. We are both proud to be called your friends and will always cherish the times we spent. God bless you and your family.
Love,
Dawn & Tim
June 03, 2006
Dante,
I love you like a son and you will be sorely missed. You were a great man in the short time you were with us, and I will think of you often. God bless you. The angels will have a great one among them in you.
June 03, 2006
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in your time of grief. I am so sorry for your loss. Dante will be missed by everyone.
June 03, 2006
my heart goes out to the family,expecially the parents.May God bless you all. I remember Dante from S.Rocco's school,cute little boy who turned into a handsome young man. Even though we moved to FLorida Dante and my son Domenic, kept contact and have been friends all these years. Dante, Dom is there in RI to pay his respects.May God keep you in his grace.I pray for you all.
June 03, 2006
I will miss you, fly with the angels!
June 03, 2006
He will always be remembered in my heart.
June 03, 2006
Dear Karen and Marty,
I wish I had some magical words that would take away your pain. Simple words can not even begin to express the sorrow I feel in my heart for you and your family. Please know that the love and support from the lives that you have so graciously touched, is with you at this difficult time.
All my love and prayers,
Liz
June 03, 2006
Dear Karen and Family, I know that no words can comfort you, but perhaps the knowledge that Dante is in God's care now will ease your sorrow. We are all praying for Dante's angel wings and for you and all of your family to be at peace with the mystery of God's choice. Sincerely, Michele Hamill
June 03, 2006
