  1. Douglas cheadle :

    so very sorry for the loss of mr. Diliddo. it was such a pleasure to have known him. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with Jan and her family.

    • Thank you so much, Doug. You and all of Ed’s friends have been a Godsend to me these last few months.And I so appreciate all the visits you made to Dad. More than alot of people did. Love you, and thank you.

  2. Jim Bartasevich :

    You have my sympathy for the death of your father.

  3. Janice Ulrich :

    It has been brought to my attention that my reply back to my friend Doug Cheadle may have been misinterpreted. All I meant by saying that Doug visited more than a lot of people was JUST THAT.. Doug visited my mom ,my dad and Ed very often …sometimes weekly. I meant to be praising him …because a lot of people can’t handle going to nursing homes, which believe me… I totally understand. I was not pointing fingers nor did I mention any names,so how it can be misinterpreted ??? I’m not quite sure …but no offense was meant. I hope that clarifies my comment.

  4. Dennis & Terrie Billuni :

  5. Carmie Savarino Cichocki :

    Andy , we called him Uncle Andy, will be remembered as a witty and intelligent person. He was a life long fierce best friend to my dad, Joseph Savarino. Rest in blessed peace. Our sympathy and love to our cousins, Andy, Fran and Jan. Carmie Savarino Cichocki and family.

    • Thank you, Carmie. Yes, our families share a great bond. Dad (and Mom) loved your parents and you , Judy, and Joe, and all of the kids. Looking through all the old photo albums to make a collage for Dad , your family kept popping up and it was so comforting to see how much joy Mom and Dad had in their life and what great friends and family they had ….and we still have. Thank you for your kind thoughts and I think of you often and hope you and yours are doing well adjusting to your new reality without your husband. If I have learned anything in these past years it is that life is so very fleeting and we must cherish every moment with our loved ones. God bless , Carmie and again thank you for your kind thoughts….Jan
