  • My deepest condolences to the entire Coletti family. Mark and Lauren I will always remember how wonderful your dad was to my mother and father my dad and him were like two peas and a pod I will always remember them arguing about who had the biggest tomatoes. I also will miss sitting in his kitchen with him and laughing at all his stories. Diesel was one in a million. He surely loved his kids and especially his grandchildren.
