Not sure what to say?

Sharon (Blondie), I'm sorry to hear of John's passing, news doesn't travel fast out this way. I could fill up 3 pages here remembering the good times I had with John, always cheerful, a fine gentleman and a one of a kind party animal. He will be missed by many. Ride in Peace my friend, we'll see you on the other side (with scotch).

I am very sorry to learn of John's passing.My mom,Anna Marie ODowd-Keating-Sullivan was Mary Rita first cousin, but I just heard today thru Marilyn Tufo.We will make a contribution to Misericordia with a request that they credit Maureen's son.Rest in peace John,Jesus by now has given you brand new legs and a strong heart.

My deepest condolences to my good friend Maureen and the entire Raniere family. Going back many years to the "old neighborhood," my late husband, Joe Morelli, knew the family quite well. John fought a great battle and will be remembered for his courage during his illness and, of course, his smile. He is now at peace. Nancy Morelli and Family.

To Marge and the entire Raniere family, my deepest condolences.

My sincerest condolences to the Raniere family. Although I never knew Billy's dad, it is obvious he was a good man. May God bless you all.

Even when he lost...

Sharon, our thoughts and our prayers are with you and your entire family at this difficult time. May God comfort you and give you strength. Our deepest condolences. Don and Jan Ashcraft
