Mr. Conti, with his green pen, was my favorite teacher. I had a rough childhood and always appreciated his kindness. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man but I know the world is better from his presence.

Mr. (& Mrs.) Conti were treasurers in my teen years. After Mr. Conti was my student teacher in the fifth grade, they allowed me to be a part of their happy life. I have so many precious pictures, including pictures with baby Kevin. They were amazing friends. My sincere condolences to Kevin and the rest of the family.

I am very sorrowful for the loss of our dear cousin Eddy, who I had met with great pleasure during his voyage in Italy when he visited our relatives in Carovilli. We were very young then but I still have good memories of that time. I was always very pleased to get news about him and his family from uncle Angelo and aunt Virginia. I am very close to all his family and I send my most sincere sympathies. Love, Renato Conti with Gilda (wife), Giulia and Cristina (daughters) from Rome.

Brother Conti was always a kind and encouraging person to be around. I will miss talking to him at the Club on Tuesdays. RIP Fratello. Dan Merendino.
