OMG, John and his family lived on Lippitt St for years. His entire family were friends with our family. To his survivor's I send my condolences. I never met his family that he married into...but, send my sympathy. To his siblings, it has been years since we have been in one another's company, and sorry to hear of John's death.

My deepest sympathy to the Machado family. I remember Mr. Machado driving me and my sister to school. I knew him since I was a child and appreciated his kindness and his humor. He was a wonderful man and I am grateful that I knew him and pray for his wife, Virginia and his children Valerie and Michelle. God bless you. Diane Denisewich D'Errico.
