    We’re sending prayers your way. It has been many year since we have seen each other but aunt Mildred always kept in contact. It’s hard to loss one parent but to loose two so close together has to be painful. I can remember your parents at my wedding thirty years ago and what a wonderful time we all had together. This was the first time I saw how much they loved and cared for each other.
    I pray that in time you can smile remembering the good times with your parents .

    Dear Marcello and family, I am incredibly sorry about all the tremendous pain that you all as a family have been through. Marcello, I worked with your dad back in the Venice days and have such warm memories of him. Your dad was there for me when my dad was dying of lung cancer when I was 21. He was my go to for the biggest bear hugs and warm, loving words and smile when I was in pain. I absolutely adored your dad and so wished I could have done the same for him and you. I also lost my sister and can understand your tremendous losses. You will always have your mom, dad and brother with you. There will be signs, look for them. It could be a smell, or a warm feeling coming over you, you’ll know it’s them. I wish I could take away your sadness. If you ever would like to talk, I would love to talk with you. I understand on a global level how hard this is for you. Email me if you want and I can give you my number. Sincerely, Wendy Tomanelli

    Dear Marcello,
    I’m sorry for your loss. Your father meant so much to so many people. He was an important figure in my life during my high school years. He taught me to so many things, from how to hold a knife to how to operate a phone with many calls coming in at once! Most importantly, he modeled what it looked like to be an excellent leader. I will always remember him and his warmth. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Marcello, just recently I found out of the passing of Alfredo and your mom. Don’t have to say how deeply and sadly the news hit me and how much I feel the the pain that you must be enduring. The last time I met your parents at Cosco, had to be probably two months before their passing and that is when Alfredo told me about Giancarlo. You know that your dad and I were good friends from high school back in the early sixties. We did many things together, sports, fishing and even wrestling . After high school I got drafted in the military and I end out in Vietnam. For two years we didn’t have any contacts, but when I came back we resumed our friendship stronger than before. My family and the Lo Presti family were very close and all my brothers and sisters were very saddened when I broke the news. I’m now retired, but I keep busy helping my son Paul at Merit Auto Body in Bronxville. I have good memories of Alfredo. He was a great friend and although I didn’t get to know your mom and you and Giancarlo too well I know that you were a very tight and honorable family. When we last met, Alfredo told me nice things about you, and I’m sure you would have made them proud of you if they were still alive. But I’m sure they are watching over you from a better place. Keep up the good work and keep the Lo Presti name high.
