Poppop I’ve been trying to find the words to say to express the way that I’m feeling. I’m upset, mad at the world, confused, lost and heartbroken. My whole world was taken away from me on May 18th at 5:12pm right out of my hands. From the day I was born, when you held me you left such a mark on my heart that I will keep there forever. You were my first superhero and grandfather wrapped in one. I couldn’t ask for anything more. You raised me to be strong, courageous, smart and loving.. You had such a contagious laugh and smile that I will remember forever. You always put your family first and would give the shirt off your back if you had to. I admired you to the fullest. The love you and Nana share is something out of a fairy tale and I wish nothing more than to have that one day. I will take everything you taught me as a little girl and apply it to the rest of my life. I will carry on your legacy for generations to come. I know this fight was a long one and I applaud your strength through it all. You’re at rest now and I wish you the sweetest peace. I will hold your hand through the rest of my life. I love you 10 cents Love your Buttercup 💜🕊️

Marty and I and my family are so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a wonderful man and we have many happy memories of him. Times goes by so fast and we lose sight of what's important sometimes. Our parents from an earlier generation cherished spending time with family and even though we may not live close by or keep in touch like we should, we are still never far away during important and difficult times. Always know we are here for you and we should all try to stay in touch. Would love a text or call anytime to catch up at 732-763-3124. Love, all of us

Pop was an amazing and loved person. Every time I saw him he would bring a smile to my face and give me a the strongest handshake known to man. I loved him like he was my own grandfather and I’m truly going to miss him. He is watching all of us and all we have to do is make him proud. I love you Pop rest in paradise ❤️
