Jim Mozzillo and I grew up together in the Bronx. He was a dear friend and was an usher in my Wedding Party. No words can say how shocked I am at his passing. We spent many a great time together and shared the same interests in many things. I'll always remember being at his home and his Mom would call me "Cow Eyes" because i have big brown eyes. R.I.P. my dear friend and God Bless you and your family!

Jim, you will be sorely missed. We hadn't spent a lot of time together, but I enjoyed and cherish what we did. You always made me feel like someone you had not seen for years.

Rest easy, my friend.
