    My Nanu was a wonderful man. He lit up the room every time he entered it. He always had a smile on his face, was always singing his heart out, and was always happy and loving life. He was very proud of his family, his home and all of his prized possessions that he worked so hard for. I wish that I had lived closer to him growing up so that we could have spent more time together but when we did get to see him he was always so happy to have us around and the time we did spend together was that much more precious. I love you so much Nanu and there is not one day that goes by that I don't think about you! My baby Joey only got to meet you once but we will always have him know what a wonderful man his great Nanu was and Sophia only got to meet you a few times but she sure does remember you! Every time a song comes on that she has heard you sing before she says "mommy it's Nanu singing" you have made such an impact on so many people's lives. We loved and respected you like no other. Please watch over my family and keep us under your wings. We love you and miss you like crazy. Love always, Rich, Mary, Sophia & Joey xoxo

    Dad,
    It's almost been a week, I miss you so much, I feel totally lost, empty, sad, mad, I am trying to cope without you....But I am not having a easy time with it...I find myself at the cemetery to be close to you...I thank you for the many signs you are giving me please continue to do so...The pennies, the cross, Blue ribbons, the 2 birds when I took mama to the cemetery for the first time yesterday when she was breaking down I told her to look and those two birds were chirping away sitting by you...I told her that was your way of letting her know you were OK!!! It sure did get her attention because you know how much she hates birds..and then they flew away~~~~I miss everything about you..your kisses, you telling me "I LOVE YOU!!!" the way only you can make me feel special and ohhhh so needed. How you always called me your baby. Tomorrow at 12:02 PM will be one week. They say time heals...I sure hope so, because this sucks.........I miss ya boob~~~ I am trying hard to be strong for mom, I hope as I always did, make you proud!!! James is trying so hard to keep a smile on my face, I know how you loved his laugh and how happy you were around him, as well as how much you loved him. I haven't heard his laughter to much lately. I love you DAD!!!!

    I grew up with a lesson on how to work for the things I wanted in life. Dad you gave me so many great tools in life. Things at first I regretted then later on in life I could never thank you enough. You were my mentor, my celebrity father. Whenever we went somewhere together, the way people knew Sammy Nash always astounded me. Going to Fort Lauderdale and staying at the Holiday Inn and visiting with the Great Rocky Marciano not once but on two spring breaks and being with him just one day before his demise will always stay with me. Knowing how close you were with him and so many other famous people. You were a star. But a star within our family due to the brightness that you shed upon us. You were our guiding light and I truly believe that you are now up in heaven and you will continue to shine for us from there as well. I love you so much. I need you and always will so please guide me along with the Lord. I pray I will see you and that you save me a seat close to you so that you can continue to share your good time stories and jokes. My continuing love and respect your son Mikol. And yes I will keep my promise to take care of your baby,my mother.

    Although i never met Sal , i feel as though i knew him. I`m very good friends with his son Mike, who acts just like his dad. Always nice people to be around,and they will do anything for you. From the looks of all the messages, he was very much loved. I`m sure he is in a better place. I will remember him and his family in my prayers...... God Bless

    So Sorry for your loss. I will always remember him coming into the Sheraton and singing. He always made me smile.

    Louie Purdy says:
    Will never forget his big smile and those funny phrases, "lungi no capiiche'" and "alore'" . I have no doubt he is engaged in a singing contest with angels and winning resoundly. So many good times and memorial adventures in a full life. He always conquered troubled times and bounced back like a fighter. I will miss you, but only for a while as we all will be together some day, till we meet again. God Bless the whole family and may he speed healing.

    Nanu,There are so many things I'm going to miss about you. I'm gonna miss you singing at all the family get together's and how you can silence a room with the first note of a song. I'm gonna miss leaving those parties smelling like your colone because of the million and one kisses you would love to give. I'm going to miss coming over and hearing you and nana doing your well known bickering and all your funny jokes and stories, and your very loud hello when you answer the phone my list can go on forever on the things I'm going to miss but I have these 33 years of amazing memories of you to hold close to my heart. I feel truly blessed to be called your granddaughter. Thank you nanu for being an amazing husband, father and grandfather. I will love and miss you always. Until we meet again nanu. God bless you and sweet dreams.
