"Happy Thanksgiving Cos... Love and miss you.... Mangiare!"
"You came to me in a dream. You were ok, just moved away but would not tell me where. " I am doing fine", you said. That is all I needed to know. Love you and miss you will the beat of my heart. xo"
"Love and miss you. You always are in my heart and on my mind. xo"
"So much time has passed, thoughts of you always. Miss you baby bro. Hole in my heart. Love you with all my heart until it stops beating. rip until I get there and slap your face. xo."
"Little Brother I cannot begin to tell you how much you are missed..3 years and it seems like yesterday...I can only hope and pray you are now resting peacefully... Love you from here to the moon and back."
"My baby brother, How I miss you. Tomorrow will be three years you have been gone. I still have nights I lay awake and see you for the last time, my hand on your chest feeling your faint heart beat and then, gone from us. I only hope the memory of you stays with people who's life you touch. It was not a nice way you left us. I try with all my heart and, with time, to understand. May you be free from all your sadness and stress. I love you with all my heart and I am a whisper away."
"Thoughts of you today, missing you and loving you with all my heart. See you at the east gate.xo"
"Happy Birthday babe bro, Kisses and love to you. Miss you, xo"
"Happy Holidays little Brother....I must say you are the lucky one...You have more family with you than Pat and I .....I Love and Miss you forever and always"
"Thought of you and U today... Miss you both so much. Wish you were here to see your smile and hear your laughter... Love you baby bro.xo"
"two and a half years just about, seems like yesterday. Miss you. Think of you often w/ both joy and sadness. Life goes on and each day getting closer to you. love you baby brother."
"My baby brother, you take my breath away w/ sadness when I think of what could have been. Yes, life goes on but in some respects it just stands still. Missing you and loving you always. xo"
"ALWAYS thinking of you in the early morning... think of you everytime I see a leaf falling... and a beautiful sunset.. and witness acts of love and kindness.. you're still here; ALL WAYS.
"My sweet Coss *
These past few days, something was different... a feeling... something amiss... And then I realized what yesterday's date was my love...
Do forgive me, old friend... It's taken this long for me to gather my courage to be (here)..
I MISS YOU AND U.
My heart still aches at the thought of never hearing your voice again... Never being greeted by that beautiful warm smile.. That GI-normous Coss hug and that huge leather bag..!!!!!haha!!!!
I hope you know how truly special you (still) are... And PSST!! I FOUND THAT CRYSTAL YOU LEFT FOR ME!!!!!"
"I think of you often as we closer to the two year mark that you have been gone. The letter:
I had a wonderful life, the best. When I took Ulysses to Sibley hospital on April 7th 2008 and he died April 16th destroyed me. I have been walking around like a zombie the last 5 years. I have to much to do and I am all alone. My mind aches, my body aches and my heart aches. I die here with him today. I love you all Pat. Cos April 16 11:59am.
I spoke w/ you that evening, I never had a clue. You didn't give me a hint that it would be the last time I would ever speak w/ you. I can not say enough how sorry I am that I did not feel your fear, your pain. I am sorry I could not help you or make you feel safe. I love you brother Cos. You never realized you mean't so much to so many. You should have stayed in DC where your real friends were. Missing you and loving you always. xo"
"I made a big mistake tonight, I reread the note you left me and your autopsy report.. God how sad you make me. I can except death, but the way you left this world, you left me heartbroken. I play those days prior over and over in my head, " what could I have done different, why didn't I see" I'm so sorry Cos. I new you were in pain but not as deep as it ran. I can't even express my self to anyone. The sadness I feel. I love you and miss you. I hope in gods great mercy you are where you wanted to be... Always in my thoughts..xo"
"It is such a very sad way to leave your family and friends, Cos. Wish I understood more and reconnected better since both our returns to Syracuse. So very very sorry....."
"Little Brother....Tomorrow is you B'day. More than anything I wish that you could be here with Pat and I. Miss you terribly. I hope that you and Ulysses are celebrating more than ever. You are now together again. How joyous you must be. You are now at peace and where you want to be...Love you Little Brother....From here to the moon and back.."
"Year two with out you this Thanksgiving. Miss you baby brother. I do think of you often, sometimes w/ a smile most of the time w/ tears. Sad that your gone before your time. But our time is not necessarily God's time. I'd like to think your at a place w/ a big smile, laughing and flood w/ security and peace in your heart. Love you Cos..xo"
"Thinking of you today with a little sadness. Even called your phone so your picture would pop up. Hoping you are at the place you need and want to be. Love you Cos. Can not even share a small talk w/ brother Joe just to give me a lift. God bless baby bro... until ...xo"
"Thoughts of you today. I think of you everyday, some days just a quick thought and others you linger all day. Miss you. Was looking at your coats and Ulysses wondering, What do I do w/ all this sh.....? I found your sympathy cards. Can not re read them right now. I did read the note you left me after you death. Looking for something different I guess. It wasn't there. Just put zing w/ some of your things. Makes me feel closer to you. Miss you honey... love you"
"One year ago today little brother you left us. Who would have thought. The family you left behind Misses you so. The family you joined are rejoicing. I pray that you are at peace now. We miss and love you tons and tons...From here to the moon and back. Hugs and Kisses to You, Joe, Dad, Mom, Jeff and Ulysses..."
"May your spirit soar in freedom
From the fears that gripped so tight.
May you find the peace your searched for
As you wandered, lost, in the night.
May your tortured mind be clear and calm
And your tender heart be warm.
May you have no need for strength now.
May there ne'er be another storm.
May the music of the angels
Be the sweet sounds that you hear.
As you're rocked in Heaven's cradle
May you ne'er shed another tear.
I'll wear your memory proudly,
My brother...my true friend.
May my love for you reach Heaven above
Until we meet again.
Missing you Cos, Love you, your sister Pat"
"Happy birthday my good friend. World sure feels like a different place without you. It's doesn't seem fair at all."
"Although you are not here in presence, you are here in spirit. May your journey continue and may you be at rest, made whole again. I love you and miss you this Thanksgiving Day. I wish I could say I am thankful for so much this year but it would not be true. I am sad you and brother are gone. Its been a painful year. Only God has the answers. Love you Cos."
"Thinking of you and Joe something awful today little brother...Miss talking to both of you. Life is not the same without the 2 of you...I hope you are finally at peace and in the arms of all of your loved ones...Dad, Mom, Joe...And of course Ulysses...Love you Lots ... You can now rest."
"I thought of you today as I do every day. "you were crushed by this world" I am so sorry. I feel so much regret, guilt whatever it is. What could I have done for you to make you feel safe and secure? Did you know I would have done anything for you? Did you know that by doing this to yourself would be a cross I carry forever? I am so sad Cos. Love you and miss you always. RIP"
"As time goes by, almost 4 months now your gone and 6 months for brother Joe, I look back at life. the joy, laughter, tears we all shared. I am so grateful we had each other. I am sad we can't grow old together. How much we will miss as a family, the four of us. Tears come out of nowhere everyday my only comfort is my belief in god that we will rejoice again someday. Love you."
"I miss you Meemo. I think of you every day I pass your room. I ONLY rejoice in, your pain is over and your free. Your friend Ed said something that made me feel so comforted. You are at a place right now where you are meditating and reflecting on your life and choice. One day you will come to me in a dream with a face all aglow. Then I will rest. Love you honey and thinking of you."
"Missing you and thinking of you, Ma and brother everyday. You left behind alot of broken hearts, questions that will never have answers. I have sad days, mad days and glad days. I thought you were like a chip cup, you would be around forever. Love you meemo."
"First with Ulysses who was a mentor and father figure to me, now with you Coss who was a great friend, I will miss both of you tremendously-more than words can say, God can now hold you two together in heaven! Deepest sympathy to his family so sorry for your loss. Love you both Ulysses and Coss and will always keep you in my heart. xoxo"
"Missing you and thinking of you everyday. A month ago today you took your last breath. Its not any easier, but I am starting to understand. If your at peace, safe and surrounded by those you longed for, what more could I ask. I love you still and forever. You brought me joy and such sorrow. In my sorrow you found joy. God bless you, keep you safe and smiling.. xo"
"Thought of you and Joe This Morning. Hoping that you are enjoying Mom,Dad and Jeff. I think that I can speak for Pat in saying that we miss you all something awful. Things are just not the same anymore. Life is so funny. You think family are going to be with you forever...We guessed sooooo wrong....I love and miss you tons and tons....You are forever in my heart....."
"I had a bad day. I found those silly glasses, the ones that are 3 inches thick. You put them on and told me " when I got stopped, I say, yes officer did I do something wrong" You looked so funny. You made me cry another day. I didn't realize the body had so much water. I miss you and Joe.. RIP w/ those you loved so dearly."
"I would like to express my deepest condolences to Cos’s sisters and family over his untimely passing. I knew him when I lived in DC in 1989 and although we didn't stay in touch, I have always had fond memories of him. For some reason I thought of him yesterday and decided to look him up in Facebook only to learn the sad news of his passing. May he rest in peace."
"Vickie and Patty; No words can express how sorry I am for your loss. It breaks my heart to know I will never have time with Cos again. Time I took for granted and let the busyness of life get in the way of reconnecting. I have great memories I revisit often. Cos, I will always LOVE U, my friend. Growing up we said we could never say good bye. So as always, I say I will "see you later.""
"I love you. I have known u my whole life and I will miss u so much. Thank u for always letting me know I was important to you,even after all these years. I love you always. God bless. My condolences to the family.. Cos was a great person in my life and will be so missed.xoxo"
"Pat, Thank you so much for leaving this tribute for Cos's friends to log onto. Those of us in DC missed him so much when he left for NY. We grieved with him when he lost Ulysses and will truly grieve the loss that occurred on Monday. I can't begin to express how much I am going to miss my Cos. He was a rich, special human being. He has all of my love always."

"My dear good friend, meeting you sparked a degree of creativity in me that I could not imagine possible. You encouraged me to pursue what I believed in no matter what was going on around me. I will miss our creative talks."
"I am deeply saddened to hear you passed, Cos. Your heart, through the words you shared so freely, will live on in your absence. You are free of the pain and loneliness we all feel in this world but I wish i could have helped because you were never really alone... Rest in Peace Cos and give much love to your loved ones and mine who have gone before us ;)"
"I was lucky enough to spend many years working with Coss. He was an absolute beautiful man with an amazing heart and a smile I will never forget. I will miss my "Starsky" as I was his "Hutch""
"Coss was on my mind recently as I wore several of the matching shirts he bought us over the years tending bar together at Chief Ike's (Chief Yikes! as he called it) in DC. We worked weekends together for 12 years--he was a beautiful force to be reckoned with and always supportive. We'd dance behind the bar and talk into the wee morning hours once the customers left. We'll miss you."
"Hey Cos, I'm sorry that I'm even writing a memorial here. I want you to know that even though our friendship was so short lived, you left an imprint in my heart and I'll keep you there forever. I'm so hurt for the your family and loved ones and Aunt Fran of course who if never thought you'd have one without the other. I wish you peace on this journey home, Cos may you truly rest in peace<3"
"Cos knew love and commitment to and from friends and family that most of us could never hope to achieve. Tragic as his death is, the majority of his life was so full making his losses that much greater to overcome. He touched every person he knew in some special way that will never be forgetten. The measure of a persons life is not calculated in years but in what you did with those years."
"To Coss, my birthday brother and owner of the most open and giving heart, I remember you with your doors always open, your light always on and a welcoming smile and kiss, as a lot of my friends and I grew up in your shadow. You will be missed and loved by more than you know. The loss is only lessened in the knowing you've found the white light you were looking for. Peace today."
"My dearest brother Cosimo, it saddens us all to lose you in this life, but we know that you are now in a very happy and peaceful place with may of your loved ones who you have missed for so very long. What a gift you have been to everyone - your words brought such hope and comfort to so many of us! My deepest condolences to Cossi's family - know that he is happy in God's loving embrace."
"Praying for Cos' family.....may you find comfort in God's promises.....I am stunned.....and heart broken...may we all reach out to those that are on our minds, do not wait until tomorrow.......Love to you Patti, Vicki and his entire family."
"I can only hope that someday the memories that we have will overshadow the loss that we feel. Love all around"
"Coss, you were one of my dearest friends. We shared so much together, especially the time we both lived in DC. And although we lived apart for many years, you were always in my heart. My heart aches with the news of your passing. I know that you are at peace now and that thought will ease the pain I feel now. I send much love out to your family and many friends. I am so sorry for this loss"
"I am deeply sorry for your loss .Please accept my condolences.
My heartfelt condolences. From Sicily"
"Cos,... I did not know you as well as Jaqui, but what I did know of you I loved, I will miss you. I hoped that I would get to see you again, but I guess it was not meant to be. Rest in pure peace my friend."
"How can I sum up our 40 yr that took us on this wonderful journey one we shared even when we were not in the same geographical area, besties forever! Our secrets & dreams; our loves & pains; triumphs & losses shared, can't wrap my head around the fact that it stops now. Your gone to fly to the grace & love of our lord, until we are united I wipe my tears know i will love you forever!!!"
"I guess 2 weeks ago was to be our last contact.I can not sum up a life time in a few words. I love you my boy.I am happy that you are at peace in the arms of God. we had a ball Coss and the heartache I feel today will dull with time. I am laughing now at the memories .my Malorie said she thought she met a greek God when she saw you. I agree. I love you."
"Cos, I love you with all my heart. I wish I could have saved you from so much grief and pain. I will carry your sorrow with me always. You knew I loved you and would carry you till my heart stopped beating. You could not see pass the pain you have left behind. I will meet you at the east gate of heaven brother.. forever will I cherish you. your Italian twin.xo"
