    Our deepest sympathy to the Difrancesco family for your loss. Felice was my fathers cousin, and grew up next door to each other in Teramo. I spent a couple of summers at my Grandmother’s home back in Italy, Where at night she and my father would tell us stories of the old days, and of the family next door. Rest in peace Mr. DiFranceaco
