  7. To the Fossceco Family. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you! I met Anthony when I was in college and it was a bond that no matter how much we would drift away from each other the next time we saw each other it was like it was just yesterday. I enjoyed talking and getting caught up on what was going on in our lives. We always took time to listen to each other and I guess that’s what made him so special. Thank you for the time we had together on this earth and I will see you again in heaven. RIP my friend until we meet again.
