  • On behalf of the Bozzato family, we extend our deepest sympathies in the loss of one of the “Pelham Corners Kids” who all went to various schools together over the best decades in the best of communities.
    Dear David,
    “Loving and kind in all your ways,
    Upright and just to the end of your days;
    Sincere and true, in your heart and mind,
    Beautiful memories, you left behind.”

    • Hi Becky, Thank you for bringing back good memories. We will always be Pelham Corners Kids, and I cherish those memories, they are the basis of our lives. Please let your family know that you are all a part of our lives.

  • It’s said to be the angels
    Are sent from above
    I’ve always had my angel
    My brother David, whose heart
    Was filled with love.

    He went away so suddenly
    He did not say goodbye
    But brothers can never be parted
    Previous memories never die.

    From David
    Every tomorrow will start without me, don’t think we’re far apart
    For everytime you think of me
    I’m right here in your heart 💓

    • Ohhhh Deb, you said it all. Davey is our special angel. God sent him to our family as his blessing to all of us. Mom said it all ” he warms my heart”
