Guest Book Highlights

January 20, 2017 "Hi Honey
It has been a very long time. So sorry to hear of the "O"s passing.

I have been given the honor of eulogizing John at the annual FDU First Pitch dinner on 2/11/17. It will be attended by approximately 200 guest including current and former players.

Please let me know if there is anything you think John would like me to say to the FDU family.

Asking God to shower your family with many blessings in the days ahead" - Mike Dugan (Kenmore, NY)
November 16, 2016 "To Johnny's family- I am sending prayers to all of you as I remember this gentle man. Johnny was in Tacoma, WA in the very early 60's when I was a little girl. My parents took him under their Italian wings. He enjoyed pasta at our house many times. At one of those dinners all of the neighbor kids came over to have their baseball gloves signed. I was pretty popular! He was so kind to me, I will always remember that side of him. I have thought of him fondly through the years. Don't worry, we'll all be together again, I do believe that. Let me express my sadness to all of you. He was very special. Sincerely with love, Linda (Pignataro) Fruge'" - Linda Fruge' (Issaquah, WA)
