My dearest precious Uncle Palmer....you were my inspiration in so many ways....playing the piano, becoming a pharmacist, being a people-oriented person. I am delighted to know that Sonny and Cher are finally together (you got each other babe)....Dave and I are holding down the fort in the meantime. We miss you both terribly. Pretty soon we will be singing Reunited & it feels so good.
love you forever & always....green jeans

Happy Birthday Unc,

Not many others have inspired me the way you did. You had a very powerful influence on my life and will continue to for the rest of my life. You were there for me when I needed someone to guide me in the right direction at a very pivotal point in my life when I was only 18 years old. You encouraged me to follow my dreams, think big, and reach my full potential while experiencing life and learning from the process. Each word you shared with me was always intended for learning some of life's most precious lessons. Failure is never a final destination, only a learning experience to change the approach and keep moving. I am proud of how far I have come since the times we would sit and talk about my future. Although I wish we could still have some of those talks, I am extremely fortunate for the ones that we did. You were an endless source of wisdom and I truly appreciate everything that you shared with me. I finally made it to Los Angeles, the city where you ended up. Being here makes me feel more connected to you and I know you are there watching from heaven. I promise to stay in communication through spirit and I know you will to continue to guide me in the right direction. We still have a long way to go and I am eager to see what the future has in store. Thank you for everything, Unc. Enjoy your birthday and rest peacefully. We will talk soon. Love, Mick

Dear Palmer-----------Today it has been 5 years since you left us.  Sometimes it feels like just yesterday.  I know you are watching over your family .  Things have been better for them. Don't worry I keep in touch with them.  Blaire graduated since you left and I am so proud of her. I promised you that she would graduate--------well its done. Jewel and Blaire have grown up to be beautiful women.  Some how I think you know that. And you have put these two on this earth to do well, they will not disappoint you---------Your Christine has found someone that you would have picked for her, and she is happy-------I think you had something to do with that too-------We all miss you ------Love Stella

Uncle,
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you and long for your presence again in our lives. We know you're in such a better home worry-free and disease-free and we look forward to day of reuniting. Until then we press on with our goals and purpose in life. We love you sooo much and always will....You were the REAL DEAL
Posted by Gina Ruffa on January 15, 2012
Unc,
So hard to believe that your earthly tent isn't here anymore but the most beautiful thing in the world was watching you grow soooooo close to Jesus through your trial on this earth and seeing your Spirit soar so high despite the physical discomfort/pain. My hero. You had the big vision the whole time (eternal destiny with Jesus)

Doc was my dentist when I was younger and lived in P.A. To this day he is the only dentist I wasnt afraid to go to. I remember him as being very kind and funny. He always told me I had perfect teeth. I always wondered if he still had his office in houston. I didnt know him well or for very long but I can say he was a great guy with a big heart. May he rest in peace and his family find comfort.

I had known Palmer for many years, but I never realized he had accomplished so much. He will be in my thoughts for a long, long time to come.
Posted by Jeanette La Rosa on January 25, 2011
Hi, dear Chris, Jewel, & Blaire, I truly miss Palmer,
who really was a friend. I felt his frustrations of not
being able to talk, but he was a fast printer and we
communicated very well. He is and always will be a
friend. Please believe me when I tell you that he was
so very proud of his family. He truly was a teacher to
all of those who had any contact with him. Love, Jeanette.
Posted by Marilyn Tako on January 23, 2011
My prayers are with your girls. I will always remember Palmer's kindness to my grandchildren. He will never be forgotten. Take care of yourselves.

Dearest Dr. Palmer,
It was an honor to meet you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Revelations 21:4
"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

Much Love,
Rochelle

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Palmer was a great dentist and friend to our whole family and we all enjoyed him over the years. I am sure he will be up in heaven now talking sports with my dad! 
With deepest sympathy,
Tricia (Fabian) & Dan Alderson and family

Palmer, what a courageous battle! I envied your faith in The Lord and now you are in His arms. I will miss our "chats" over the last months and know how much your family will miss you. This Earth was a better place because of you. Everyone you touched will miss you tremendously. You were a dear old friend. Peace, Yvonne

Jam Session

Shared by Anthony Rasicci on June 26, 2014

Unc, 

My whole existence with you was like the best jam session ever.  Whether weilding an instrument I barely knew how to play or listening to one of your stories on Uncle Dave's back porch I realized that you lived your life like a true troubadour! 

Just recently I want you to know that me (Anthony David Rasicci and Joseph Palmer Rasicci) shared a jam session listening to records in my mother's basement. As we picked through the record selections including classic 70's and 80's LPs, we spent the day jamming out to great music.  In this classic unwitnessed day, we stumbled upon Doc Palmer's finest work ever laid down on wax.  That song that we played over and over again was "Still Hot from the Last Time Baby"...honest to God Uncle Palmer was ahead of his time.  Leaving behind his golden trademark, his thick and rich voice which I constantly compare to a more soulful version of Barry White (if that's even possible), it will live on forever in my heart!!!

Beyond that record that has brought me so much joy it's his voice I will never forget!  Do you remember the time the whole family attempted to make a commercial featuring the song "Don't Worry Be Happy"  These are words that I will truly try to live by in my next thirty years!!!  The other musical memories I have of Unc include his saxophone playing at the Washington house, and the times he would sit at the Piano at Uncle Dave's and Aunt Bonnie's and scat soulful Jazz and Blues classics or anything that sounded fun.  Unc was the king of freestyle and improvisation, I'm sorry this was written so long after your passing, but I didn't know how to express these words at that time.  

Thanks for being there for my brother Dante', mother Dianna, myself, and Justina throughout all of the years, I love you so much, and I can't wait to see you and the rest of the Rasicci/Restaneo gang up in heaven again reunited someday!


Love, Peace, and most importantly Italian Grease!!!

Doctor Palmer

Shared by Amber Marin on January 24, 2013
Wow!! I still can't believe that you are gone!! I worked with Dr Palmer in Lancaster, CA. He was always one of my favorite people to work with.. I had heard talk of Dr Palmers passing last year but honestly never believed it...I thought no way!! Not Dr Palmer!!! He had such spirit and will to live and learn. Something made me start googling his name in the last couple of days and found this site...and my heart sank :( he was such an amazing person...I remember how much he loved his wife and would show us pictures of her and being so proud to call her his...and his beautiful daughters he could go on forever about them and their talent. I remember him telling us about a show that he was doing the voice for which was about his life and how excited he got talking about that!! I remember his gold necklace and rings that he used to wear and his attitude of everything will be ok. I also remember me looking for somewhere to live and Dr Palmer taking me over to one of his apartments or condos that he owned and showing me around there to try and help me out. I never pursued living there because I didn't have the funds to do so at the time but I remember him telling me not to worry and that he would work with me....he was always so kind and generous!!! I will never forget him for all of my life...RIP Dr Palmer Restaneo...gone but never forgotten!!
