Frannie , your family and the rest of the Moavero family,
My sincerest condolences. I was surprised to hear of Richie's passing. I was looking forward to seeing him (when Covid allows) when we resume our monthly Wednesday night dinners in Stamford ( and his verbally chastising me for not getting back to him if I was coming or not ).
He was a genuinely nice person. We will miss him.
Again, I am sorry for your lost.

Mrs. Moavero , Richard and Arlene ,
I was so very saddened to read of Mr. Moavero's passing.
I remember well growing up on West Broad way back when seeing him in his police uniform and joining us kids in a game of "kick soccer" or "wiffle ball".
On the occasion we would run into each other throughout later years he always greeted me with a warm handshake and the "remember whens..."
Mrs. Moavero , I will never forget when my beloved Father passed and you paid your respects to my family with the words " I had to be here for you boys" meaning my brother Sal and I , Richard's childhood friends. What a very special lady you always were to us as children , and still as gracious on the occasion we may run into each other and always will be in my hearts memory. I am so very sorry for your loss.
Covid has made us with med-issues so more cautionary and so please accept my sincere condolences to you all and may Mr. Moavero rest in peace.
Sincerely,
Emilio Migliorelli
