Dear Nick, Debbie, Laura,Frankie and Linda, grandchildren, great grandchildren and family please accept my sincere condolences on loss of your dad,grandfather, great grandfather. Had pleasure to know both parents. Went to school with Nick later became best friends with Debbie and our Jason's became good friends growing up and I have the honor of being God mother to Debbie's youngest son Ryan. Laura and I became friends and our children had many weekend sleep overs. Frankie kept us busy and Linda was the baby but going to school lol. Debbie and I cried when I decided to leave Kingston and move to Verobeach, Fla. Tried several times to get her to go but just wanted to stay near family. We always got reconnected when I returned. May your Dad,grandfather and great grandfather RIP always. GOD BLESS
