I send my sympathies to the Esposito family. Bill, was always very loyal to me as one of his contractors to assist with fire protection in many of his rental buildings. I enjoyed going to Bills annual Xmas party as much as he enjoyed hosting the parties.

We were so sorry to hear about Billy's passing. My mother (Connie) always used to tell me how Billy was the most adored of all the cousins! I'm sure you will miss him dearly.

You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Michael and Raquel Belfonti
