  1. Daddy, I miss you so much. I still look into your room to see if you are there, and when I see that you are not, the sorrow is there. Tell Mommy how much we miss her, too. Give her lots of hugs from me and Dylan. I’ll miss you foreever. Love always, Carol

  2. Dear Debra, In spite of the fact that it’s been at least 40 years since we last spoke, as someone who understands the deep loss that one feels when losing a parent, I just wanted to extend my condolences to you and your family. I do hope that your memories of your father will comfort you during this difficult time. With best wishes, Kathryn McGrail–former classmate at St. Rita’s

  3. To the DiPiazza Family: Our deepest sympathies for your loss. May you find peace and comfort in the happy memories of your life with him.

  4. Sue (and family)… my sincerest and heartfelt condolences on the passing of your Dad. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Happy Birthday, Dad. Hope you have finally found some peace and joy. Jenny is 22 now, living on her own, working and enjoying life. A beautiful young woman! Love, Deb

  6. Daddy, although it has been more than three years since you have been gone, I miss you so much. I see your writing in the work you have done for the company, and it brings back so many memories of us driving in to work together. Your memory makes me smile sometimes, too. I love you. Take care of Matt for us, okay? And give Mommy a big hug for me.

  7. Daddy, I miss you so much. You were, and still are, the best Daddy ever. You taught me so much about being a loving parent, and I think Dylan is benefitting from that. He is going off to college in two weeks, and still misses you. Please give Mommy hugs and kisses from us. We love you.
