  1. My memories of Mr. C are all at the rink. I remember being on the ice whether it was a game or practice him and my dad would always stand by themselves away from everyone else watching from the stands. I guess they both are watching from above now. My condolences and prayers from my family to all of Mr. C’s family.

  2. It is with much love and sorrow to hear of our beloved cousin’s passing. What a great guy! I have fond memories of several spirit-filled conversations when he stopped by our .mansion. on Woodin Street. He always had something interesting to share about his family. You could tell he loved them dearly. May Sam R.I.P forever with God, the Blessed Mother, angels, saints, his dear parents, Uncle Carmen, Zia Antoinette, and .all the relatives.. I know he will as he served God so well in this life…djc

  3. Our deepest condolences to the Ciardiello Family from the Cimino Family. As neighbors for many years on Gilbert Ave., we’ve shared many good memories and we are saddened by your great loss. May your dad (husband) Rest In Peace.
