    Jame’s smile is a contagious one, when I look at the picture I smile as well. I feel 67 years of marriage is beautiful, that is very precious. My deepest condolences during this difficult time. I send loving thoughts to all in the family.

  7. Jimmy, is someone that once you met him you knew the type of person he was. He was a generous man to a fault. We would be at Kennedy Field and he’d buy ice cream for our kids, more kids would come and he’d put his hand back in his pocket, more kids would come and he’d dig a little deeper, one more would come and he’d dig way down deep until all the kids had ice cream, all while Patti would shake her head and just smile at him. He would give to anyone that needed his help and all he wanted in return was to see a smile on your face. Don’t be fooled though, if he felt strongly about something he would let you know, I knew that first hand. The one thing you could never misinterpret and I will always remember is that he put family first. No matter what was going on Patti, his children and grandchildren were his number one priority. And how could we forget one of his best qualities, his smile, that unforgettable smile, he had the brightest smile and he just wanted everyone to be happy. May you rest in Peace Mr. Mazzo until we meet again!

  8. So sorry for your loss. A great family man leaving a great legacy behind. Heaven gained another angel. Deepest condolences from the Rivera family.
