To the Family of Joseph Grazanti:
So sorry for the family's loss. My friendship with Joe started in 1942 when as kids we both took our first job outside the home; picking cherries for commercial processing. Our paths crossed again in 1948 when I took a summer job with New York Central Railroad where Joe had already started his career. Some 30 years later Joe presented me with a historic New York Central Railroad collectors belt buckle which I still hold today, and which continues too bring back fond memories. When my wife died in 2003 my friend Joe was one of the first to call on me to express genuine sympathy. Now it is my turn to give thanks for an 80 year friendship with a kindly and good person who the people of Westfield will fondly remember and hold his memory in the highest of regard.
