|My prayers and deepest sympathies to the Costly family for your loss. Ray truly loved Eddie as a brother, a friend, a co-worker. Knowing their friendship has compelled me to write this. Eddie was a great guy, and the short time that I knew him, he was kind, warm, and friendly. Both were ill at the same time, and use to joke together who would be the first to go. They both went together, 3 days apart. Well, I know they are together with no more suffering, joking like they use to. Thank you Eddie for being a true friend to Ray. And I know you feel the same. God Bless you. May you rest in peace.
Ray Pizzano and Stephanie
