Guest Book Highlights

September 16, 2014 "Had the pleasure of working for Cosimo, Louis and John at Matassa's in the late 1980s, and will always remember just how kind, caring and modest Cosimo was. My thoughts go out to the entire Matassa family.

Christopher Hebert, Carencro, Louisiana" - Christopher Hebert (Carencro, LA)
September 16, 2014 "To the family - how bless you are to have had Jennie and Cosimo as parents and grandparents. I know you have missed Jennie and will miss Cosimo's physical presence but they are never far away.

I have the best memories of Cosimo and Jennie spent with the Italian group at Paradise Cafe and our other meeting places for conversation and lunch. Loved the jokes he would translate into italian and when he spoke of the old days in the quarter, it brought me home. I can not express in words how he and Jennie set the perfect example of loving and caring. They were absolutely head over heals in love with each other - it was a beautiful thing to witness. I can't be sad, they are together again. Love you both." - Regina Bertolino (Saint Rose, LA)
