To the wife of Daniel Afflitto -- After reading the memorial to your husband, I was saddened that he didn't get a chance to realize that he was going to be a father again , but then, realize, YES, he does know and is looking down on you.
Our hearts go out to the Afflito family. We did not know your loved one personally, but our New Jersey family did. May you find comfort in your memories of Daniel and know that there are others out here who share in your loss.
Patrick & Stacey Riordan
As an equity trader and father, I am passing on my condolences to your family. My heart goes out to you and I hope that your pain may disappear, but that your loving memories stay forever
My deepest sympathy goes out to Daniel's family. I am a mother of three who feels great sadness for your loss. God bless.
My sincerest condolences to the family. The picture of Daniel with the baby ripped my heart out, and I have tears in my eyes. I have a 13-month-old. God they are so precious. I am so sorry for what unexpected tragedy struck his family. The healing process will not be a short one. But as you stated, God gives and God takes, and he will provide for your children. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger! God bless,
May the strength of love keep your family strong. He will always be with you.
Please accept my condolences at the loss of Daniel. I pray to God to give your family immense courage to lead a happy and healthy life, and be assured that Daniel's and so many other people's lives were not lost in vain. Please know your family will be in my thoughts everyday. My best wishes.
I can't and never will imagine what you and your family must be feeling. I think, now I know that God will watch over you. I never will forget that terrible day. It never will leave my heart, the pain and the emptiness, that is in yours. I know none of the people that died but yet I do. Do you understand what I am saying? Please go on being strong. You will all be together again. I hope that what I am trying to say is coming out the right way. I am doing this just to say that I am so so sorry. May God keep you safe and warm.
Dearest Stacey, may you know that your sorrow is felt by unknown friends everywhere who look upon Daniel's picture and wonder why he had to be taken from you so mercilessly. Like the harmony of concentric ripples from a terrible splash over the surface of the American Spirit, the entire lake of America has felt your pain.
God bless you! You will never be forgotten by your friends from Pines Lake. PLB remembers you always!
