|You will NEVER be forgotten, you are not only my Dad, but my Very BEST FRIEND!!! JILL|
"Dad... I loveYou so much i think about you all day everyday...."
"I would just like to share a memory I had with you before I ever met jill. I think jill, you where in prison at this time. Anthony had taken me over to see you. You live in the apartments behind Safeway on 33 Rd . Ave. Northern. You couldn't really talk, I think you were just out of the hospital. Anyways, we went to check on you and you opened the door with no shirt and a walking cane, but I remember that I stayed and talked to you cuz Anthony had to meet up with his friend. We talked about jill, and you were kinda complaining about some things she did that you didn't like, you were saying that she was due out pretty soon and you weren't sure what to expect. Hope she was going to b a little more calm and stay away from all the bullshit get a job and get somewhere. We also talked about I believe you as a vet and the war. I'm almost positive, cuz I always liked talking with or listening to stories about history from people who lived thru it. And we even had time to spare and talk about some of the antiques you had displayed around your place. One in particular was part of a newspaper about " THE KENNEDY" ASSASSINATION. YOU ONLY HAD THE cover PART OF THE ARTICLE. And I too am fond of and collected very similar items and love antiques. That's when you told me that the part of the paper you were missing was the inside part that had pictures of Jackline carrying or walking next to her husbands casket. I said oh, well I have the same papers from that day. But your dad argued and said theirs no way I had that piece. I argued I know I do. So he said if you have that paper bring it back to him and he'd give me 100.00. I said alright I'll be back. Eventually Anthony returned and we left. Shortly afterward i would meet fred. And lived with him, and he mentioned your name a few times here and their. So, i mentioned our conversation. Of course he said he aint got no money to forget about it. About 2.5 years would go by and I just could forget. Even if you didn't have any money I just wanted to show you I did have it. But I never pushed myself to make it, due to the fact that by that the was a little issue between fred me and jill. Which is really stupid to do. So many times I think back on things I wanted to do or people I wanted to just stop in and say hi, but never did and never had another chance before it was too late, only because it would cause a problem SD omen here with someone. I don't ever want to find myself doing or not doing anything because of someone else. I do what I want cuz I want to. Lol sounds all good. Anyway, so one day on my many move outs from Fred's I was sifting thru all my shit (down sizing), I pulled out that paper. I stopped fred and said hey, when you go back over to Al's could you take him this paper, I want to see if he remembers the conversation. He said sure. I doubt he ever took it. I'm sorry I never stopped by to see you before you pasted. It wasn't like we really knew each other, but I had a good strong conversation with you. I just liked it. No matter if you cared about what we were talking about or if you just thought I was cute. Etc. And of all people to bring me over to meet you, Anthony Lane . I guess he was good for a few things. Regardless I M thankful that I had the opportunity to have met you. That day I will forever remeber.unfortunately I never had the chance to say by, in person. So I'll say it now, may you fever rest in peace my friend. Jill, I'm so sorry for your loss. No matter what he Wil always live forever with in you."
"DAD I LOVE YOU ... NOT A SINGLE HOUR GOES BY THAT IM NOT THINKING OF YOU & MISSING YOU .... I MISS U SO FREAKING MUCH ... IM SO SORRY I WASNT THERE WHEN YOU NEEDED ME DAD I WILL NEVER FORGIVE MYSELF IM SO SORRY DAD!!"
"Al Ceccardi was a hell of a man, and a good friend of mine. He could lighten or darken any place, at anytime, depending on the situation. He never gave up any ground that he was holding, no matter what. That was a trust that was never doubted. Al was fearless, careless, and wreckless when it came to living life like he thought his life should be lived. But man did he do alot of living in the time he was given. I'm sure none can dispute that fact. He loved life, friends, and family. He will be missed. Until we meet again brother!"
"Al you were always so sweet and funny and loyal. You are a wonderful man who will live in our hearts forever. Jill loves you so much and will carry on but life will never be the same. I love you Al!!!!"
"Al Ceccardi was a great person and friend. He would do anything he could to help. Not just his family and friends. He was there for so many. I love him so very much. Even though we did not see much of each other in the past year or so. He will always be loved by me and in my heart. He is in peace now. I miss you, I love you always. You are one in a million."
"Al i was glad to see you ecspecially your smile (you had your teeth by the way) but you probably knew that just giving your daughter a hard time like always ....
