Carla, Joe, Ricci and Family. Frankie and I are so sorry to hear of Rocco's passing. We both remember him from a little kid always with a smile. He was always very respectful to the both of us whenever we saw him. He made you feel that he really cared about how you were doing. With our deepest sympathy, Carol and Frankie
