Mr. DelCotto was my neighbor for over 30 years . He was a very nice and quiet man. He has been missed since he moved. And now to hear that he passed. He will be forever missed. As a classmate it is so sad to hear about someone’s parent passing so once again I have to say how sorry I was to hear it…Take care and God bless.

Mike, please accept my condolences and prayers on the loss of your father. It has been too many years since we last saw or spoke with each other, but we have both suffered losses in our families. My mom and dad have both passed (Dad in 2010, Mom in 2012) and I’m living back in the area where our family grew up. I will try to be at the funeral service on the 9th, but if not, my prayers are with you, always.
