    “Bobby” was my godfather and good friend. I had the good fortune of inheriting a love of the man from my dad who went way back together to the old Yorkville neighborhood. In later years he embraced me like a son and added more richness and depth to my life than he could ever know. I’m grateful to have known him as well as I did and will miss him greatly. God bless and hold you, Bobby. You’re home now.

    Bob and I met in the Army when we served together in Washington, D.C.
    We became instant friends and remained so all of our lives.
    He was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.
    My sister and I attended Bob and Margaret’s weeding and later
    my wife and I visited NYC every year over the Holidays and shared
    time , meals and plays with them.
    Your life time friends Diana and Charlie , who you always called me
    Rest in peace, Ricuitooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
