    Dear Johnny,  

    You will be remembered as a hard working, kind-hearted, music loving, cat loving, wonderful man!  I am sorry that we did not know that you were in the hospital and gravely ill, or we would have been there with you.  We will never forget the beautiful family Thanksgivings, Christmas Eves, birthdays, and visits together.  I really hope that someone is taking good care of your cat for you.  I know you would have wanted that.  Please give Grandma Capriotti, Grandma Novelli, and your mom and dad, big hugs from us!  Until we meet again in Heaven, sweet cousin, rest well.

    Rest In Peace John!  So many fond memories of our many years of friendship.  We moved across the country, but for so many years John continued to share his love with us through music.  His smile, laugh, and gentleness will remind us of how easy love can be!  Much Love, Rand & Jeanna Delcotto
