I’m at a loss for words and you’re probably saying that’s a first. All I can do is tell you that I am so thankful for you and the time we had. You were the best uncle, brother, son, husband and my brother in law. You called me sis and that meant so much. You accepted me into your family from the start. You always said look after my knucklehead brother. He needs to live more and not work so much. You were always there for us no matter what. I am going to miss your jokes. Whose going to make fun of me now ?!? I will miss our get togethers. I promise you, I will take care of your brother, your mom, your wife and your daughters. Rest peacefully. I love you bro.

It’s been many years since we’ve seen each other, but I always enjoyed watching your family grow. I also lost my life partner years ago, but she is with me every day. I have so many memories from the Bronx that Joe was a part of. My prayers for Joe and Richie and deepest condolences for your loss.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do or say and it feels like nothing is enough. My brother was the most amazing person and has been my hero since I was a child. I can’t compare to the man he was but promise to do my best in honoring him everyday moving forward. Please just know that my commitment to you and the girls is forever and I’m here for anything you need.
RIP big brother… Your on Gods wave now… I love and miss you…

Keep us under your wings and Rest easy my love

I feel like I’ll live with a lot of regret about not showing you the appreciation I had for you as a dad while I could do it to your face. When my biological father passed as a kid it was hard, but as I’ve gotten older I realized that what I lost then was my idea of who he was, and that I didn’t really know him. This is different, and much harder. Because you were there, 24/7, every day, present and willing in a role that I know must’ve been daunting at the time. I know I didn’t always make it easy for you and as we both got older we didn’t always see eye to eye on every topic; but I’ve always respected and looked up to you for the time & effort you put into our family. You taught me how to be assertive and active in my own life, to never back down from the things I wanted for myself even if they seemed hard or impossible, and to care about what I left behind as a model for my sisters so they could see what could be done with enough effort and faith. I see so much of you in me, which used to get my eyes rolling, now brings me to tears, and will hopefully one day be a source of so much joy from knowing that I always have you with me. There was a soft heart behind all the jokes and sarcasm; and your smile, laughter, and tenacity will be missed every single day.

I promise to always take care of mom and the girls in every way that I can. Thank you for always doing and being the best that you could, you changed my life for the better the second you entered it. I will never forget you. I love you dad, rest in power & peace until we meet again.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
