My sincerest condolences to Ginny, Chris, Nancy, and Dominic

Your dad was a real gentleman, welcoming person, and a pleasure to be around. I had the fortune of knowing him via my Dad and also their involvement with the planning board. You probably don't know this, but I spent time with the two of them at the Brass Rail to 'discuss issues' way back when, good memories :) He even was so kind to give me some advice on the house after my parents passed. God bless.

My condolences to the Comito family. My name is Susan (Grammes) Mezzanotte. My parents were Bill (Alpo) and Betty Grammes - great friends of the Comitos. My parents have past away as well, my mom recent, and now they can enjoy each other in heaven again. Mr. Comito was a wonderful true gentlemen. I have many memories of the Comito brothers and their families. One in particular was of my 5th birthday party pictures that I found while trying to clean out my parents house - many pictures, laughs and fun with the Comito girls. God Bless you all. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

To the family of Domenic,
Domenic was a dear friend. We would sit with Anthony and Domenic at Manhattan Bagel almost every morning. There always was a story or joke to be told. He would have a cinnamon raisin bagel and a cup of coffee. He would take a to go lid and scrape the bagel. Anthony would tell him to stop! Anthony was a devoted brother. Domenic will always have a piece of my heart.
