In loving memory of my husband. Philip Pecora 02/23/1930-03/15/2012. Another Christmas has come and gone without you,I miss you more each day.i miss our New Year's Eve together. Not a day goes by that I don't cry with a broken heart. I told you what would happen with your children. I hate that I was right. But hoping they come to realize how wrong it was. I hope you and your mom,dad,Rita , and Turk were together for the holidays. I want you here with me. I just can't stop loving and missing you. You were the best man I know. I now know, you worked so hard for us to have,not you. I thank you for loving me as hard as you did. No body could ever fill your shoes. I love you&that will never change.

Remembering my husband philip Pecora..I miss you &will forever. I wrote on the last 3holidaus but some how it's not listed. Not much has changed,stan&joanne are still together,every ones trying to fill your shoes. Not possible. I love u so much it hurts. we never missed a New Year's Eve for 36yrs. I smile thinking bout the track &dinner every n.y.eve. Going home setting alarm just to say happy n.y. Kissing then going back to sleep. Not exciting but our tradition. I would wish you back I miss you so. I love you,talk soon. Wife,sherry

To my very generous loving husband, Philip A Pecora. I miss you. Your on my mind every day. Not a day goes by I don't think of you. Your beautiful smile,that little twinkle in your eyes, this is a much less colorful world without you in it. As your looking down at us, remember that. I will always love and miss you. I love you, your very lonely wife, sherry.
