  1. In the last few yrs Artie and I became close friends and cousins again. In his last month he didnt want me to know about how sick he was,because of the death of my own daughter. That was Artie, always thinking of other people before himself. He was the best son parents could ever have, he took wonderful care of his mom and dad. To Ricky and Lisa and family. Artie would always tell me how wonderful you were to him and what good care you took of him. I know how close he was to you Ricky and how much he loved the whole family. May the thought of him having no more pain and his love for all of you, help you thru your loss Love ya Artie, birthday is diff. now that i cant tease you anymore for being the older of us.

  2. Dear Arty: I’ll never forget the countless picnics at your house and chauffeur rides around New England as a kid as well as on my wedding day! You were always such a loving and giving person. I pray for those left behind who are grieving so. I also pray there is no more pain for Arty. I will miss him. Time to rest in peace. Love Always, Your cousin, Betsy
