    Maryellen and Tiffany I was so very sad to hear of your loss…words cannot begin to express the grief you are feeling. I will be thinking of both of you.

    Love,
    Leslie and family

    Maryellen I am so sorry to hear if your loss and your daughters as well. He will always watch over her in heaven I know it’s hard right now but in time you and Tiffany can look at photos and memories that you have and alway know he will be there with you always in spirit and in your heart

  3. Kelley Harris says:

    A million thoughts have been swirling through my head in the last couple of days, but the one I keep returning to, the thing I can’t get past, is how unfair it is that you’re gone. How unfair it is to you, who had so much life left to live, and how unfair it is for the rest of us, who have to figure out how to live in a world you’re not part of anymore. How do you say goodbye to someone you didn’t even know was going to be leaving? We all miss you, more than words can say. It’s so hard to see beyond the sudden pain of loss. I know it won’t always be this painful, but your absence will always be felt. Thank you, Sito, for being such a wonderful person, for all the fun and laughter and hugs and conversation and love. You will never be forgotten. You will forever be missed and loved. Rest well, my brother-in-law, until we meet again.

    Hi Sito:
    34 days have passed since I last saw you. The pain Dad & I feel is so profound, I don’t know how to go on. Your sister Rosie misses you terribly. I wish we had been able to do more to help you. We will never understand why you left us so soon. We will take good care of Tiffy & Maryellen for you. We know how much you loved them, and us. I don’t know how we will face the holidays without you. I keep hearing your voice, & remember all the funny things you used to say to me! I will miss you forever my son. With profound love, we miss you so much! Love, Mom, Dad, Chris & Rosie.

Please watch over us all, & ask God to help us find peace with your loss. I miss you so much, & all the funny things you used to say to me. I hope you’re at peace & keeping Grandma company. I will write again, beloved son.

    Hi Sito:
    65 days now. Oh my God, I can’t believe I haven’t seen your face, or heard your voice. It really doesn’t get any easier as days pass. I think it gets harder. Your dad is having such a tough time, he misses you so much! I’m bringing you to Chris & Kelley’s house on Turkey Day with us, I don’t want to leave you home alone on a holiday. Love you & miss you so much! I hope Grandma is helping you up in Heaven! We love you Sito!!! Mom, Dad, & Webby

    Hello Sito:
    76 days today! God, I still can’t believe you’re not here. It’s almost Turkey Day, (your favorite holiday), am having lots of difficulty realizing you won’t be at the table this year. I hope you’re at peace, and never forget how much we love & miss you! Rosie misses you terribly! I like to believe you’re safe & sound, & surrounded by loved ones who’ve passed before you. I love you to the moon Sito! I will write again soon. All my love, Mom

    Hi Sito:
    I wasn’t able to post on your birthday last Wednesday, but we all got together to remember you. W had food, cake, & let balloons go with notes attached to them for you. George got a Majin Buu tatoo! Dad is getting a tattoo also. Tiffy let the biggest balloon go for you, & almost 25 people came to the house to remember you on your birthday. We miss you so much, & I think it seems to get a bit harder with the passing of time. You’re missing out on so much, but we will always honor your memory by doing all we can for Tiffy & Maryellen, & please never forget how much your brother & sister miss you, & the twins & Jimmy. I hope you are happy & at peace in Heaven, give Grandma & Auntie Linda a hug for me. I love you & miss you more than ever! Happy 29th birthday in Heaven Son! Dad sends his love & misses you terribly…. Love, Mom

    Hi Sito:
    2 more days will be a year since we lost you. I still count the days every week, guess I’ll probably do that for some time to come. One year ago today, I would have never guessed that would be the last full day you’d still be with us. I’m so sad & Dad is having a hard time still. Everybody missed you, especially your sister. She’s always thinking of ways to keep your memory alive. Tiffy & Maryellen are doing well, they miss you so much too. All of the family misses you. I know it’s still very hard for Chris & Corey as well. I’ll never know why you had to leave us, but I hope I can find peace someday & I know you’re in a better place now. We love you & miss you to the moon & back Son! Love, Your family.

    Dad & I are sitting @ the kitchen table having coffee thinking about you today. We will be going to Castle Island today to remember you. Maryellen & Tiffy are going too. Chris & the twins are coming too. We hope you are at peace & laughing with Grandma up there. We think of you & miss you everyday. We know you will always be with us & watching over us. Rosie bought lanterns to send off for you. We love you son. God Bless you Sito, we love you, your family.
