What a great picture of cousin Johnny. I was so sad to hear of his passing. I remember back when we were kids how he took us all on tractor rides back through the woods. What a great person. And how he loved his little dogs. My prayers for him and all of the family. May he rest in peace with his mom and dad. Love, The Makowski's from Erie PA

John Grandinetti was a dear friend from Sheffield High School. We spent hours together developing pictures, working on the yearbook, walking to/from school, and talking about life. He loved science and always dreamed of winning first place at the county science fair with his fruit-flies experiments. John proudly grew white orchids for my wedding. Laughter was always present when we were together, even in later years when we would meet, the conversations were effortless and fun.
I’m sorry to be out of town for his service but will always hold fond memories of John in my heart. Diane Jones Scarcella
