Gloria, Michael and Family. I'm very sorry to hear about Mike. My Family knew your Family for many Years. Mike always seemed to be very happy. We lost touch after my family moved to Collegeville. Mike and Gloria came to my wedding 20 years ago. I'm so glad they came. They are a very nice Family and I'm glad they were in my life. God Bless you all.

It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.

I was quite saddened on hearing of Cousin Mike's death. In the recent years, our meetings were centered around the Ciccanti Family Reunion gatherings. And although his "million dollar" smile was always present, he was most interested in our families and their well being.

But what I remember the most about Mike was the special relationship he had with our Dad, Sal. Most of the conversation was, of course, spoken in Italian, I could tell that they enjoyed speaking with one another. Seemed to be a deep respect on both sides.

Gloria....you and your family were blessed with a very special man who loved you and your children beyond words. May his kindness and love of life be continued in the Mastrocola lineage.

I will miss him and his never ending smile.

God Bless.
