Not sure what to say?

Our sympathy to the family. Henry was my wonderful choir director and friend for many years. He composed our wedding processional music, which he framed for me. He gave my godchild, Adrianne Gagnon, piano lessons. He was a very special person.
God bless.

I am so very sad to hear this news. Mr. Piermattei taught piano to me, my four siblings, and my Mother over a period covering almost two decades. He was a wonderful, patient teacher and taught me so much. We so enjoyed it when he would play for us after a lesson and he played piano at my Mother's funeral mass. I will never forget him and am forever grateful to him for enriching my life. My deepest condolences to the entire Piermattei family.

Mr. Piermattei was my piano teacher for seven years,and was always very patient. My parents also enjoyed his musical gift as he would occasionally play for us at the end of a lesson. My sympathy to his family.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

Our sincere condolences to "Corky's" family. He was very dedicated to his Family and his music.
We spent msny times together with both of our Parent's Families.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family during this very sad time. Henry was such a wonderful man and an inspiration to so many.
