    I am so sorry for your loss of David…he was a very nice man and always talked so highly about his family, his grandkids especially. I met him when he ordered some Bears & Pillows out of Marthas wedding dress. He was so happy to have those made for Erica & Michael and his Granddaughters & couldn’t wait to give them to them. Thinking of you all during this difficult time and again, I’m sorry for your loss.

    As families go, and grow, they quickly become a member of many more families. While we were more in touch with the Marrapese families when we were younger without families of our own or several moves throughout the states each and every one of Ronnie’s brothers and Beverly’s uncles have always held a special place in memories and hearts. Our prayers and caring are with all of you!

    I am saddened to learn of David’s passing. Although I have not seen you for over 30 years when I was with your cousin Jerry F., I remember the bike rides. Sadly life gets past us way too soon. God Bless your family.

    A good friend many years ago. We laughed and learned and spent lots of time together. You were one of us and it was great having you along. I won’t ever forget the many nights at the Winfield Grill and the bunny hunts with your CB radio in your Rambler. I was happy and honored to call you friend. You will be missed my good friend.
