First I would like to thank everyone for being here today to pay his or her respects to my Pop Benjamin Marotti. He would be so overwhelmed with joy to see his family and friends here today. My Pop was one of the most selfless and determined man you would ever come across. I'm so very bless that I was able to wake up every morning to my Pop for 15 years. My Pop was the type of person who would go out looking better than I did half the time. He had a very serious relationship with his hair. His hair was very important to him and I could be glad to say at the end his hair still looked pretty damn good. When searching through my Pop's phone I found articles of cures and studies for cancer. He was so determined to beat the disease and he did everything he could he put himself through radiation, chemo and even drank this tea that use to smell so bad to beat it and even in the end if he didn't think so he did a pretty damn good job. My fondest memory even though it wasn't the best situations was actually this Christmas when my Pop actually said goodbye to everyone and I thought to play Frank Sinatra to smooth things down since he would always ask me how to play it on his phone yet in my mind I didn't know I had probably chosen one of the worst song "My Way" and you would probably realize if you know the song why that was bad timing yet my Pop and Ma had reassured me I had nothing to be sorry about and he was still tapping his feet and singing underneath his breath and as a family we just sat with him and listened to all of Sinatra's hits and I hope he is doing that right now in heaven. I Love you forever Pop

Since my father has been sick , I have spent a lot of time with him. Most of it was spent in New York traffic going to doctors, chemo radiation other times fixing a computer that was not really broken (and researching himbjow to use the non-broken computer) He would say to me you are the only one who will sit and teach me (again and again). I told him if I can teach kindergartens how to use a computer I can teach you.I promised myself that I would cheerish all the time we spent. Not take it for granted our long drives if he wanted to listen to Frank Sanatra we did , I taught him to use YouTube and spoke about the good old days.Our family has great memories growing up! We were raised in an large Italian family .Our grandparents Mickey and Sal were wonderful. They taught all of us that family is first. Not only did they believe it they lived it . Their house was always filled with family, food, love and laughter. Any given holiday , specIl occasion or just Sunday dinnertheor door was always open to family and friend and friends that became family. Sometimes up to 70 people would be in their house. They would be eating macaroni, meatballs and gravy and celebrating family. Most of allOlder generation has past but their memories live on for most of this in this room.My father in-law told my husband , Italian families are not like ours (Irish). He told on any special occasion you will know who the hierarchy of the family is by where they sit. The elder are always at the head of the table.We all knew that one day we the cousins would sit at the head of the table.My father has joined those who held their seats at the head of the table.That table in heaven is quite full with his grandparents, parents , brother , uncles , aunts , cousins. I know that everyone has been saving a seat for my dad , so they have Sunday dinner. On Monday my grandmother finished the macaroni and gravy and everyone is enjoying dads welcome home feast. I can hear my grandma saying Gravy is done ! Now Manjia ! Our memories of dad and this who are sharing his meal are alive in our hears and we cherish all those memories. We love you and miss you all!

We pray that your family gains the strength to hold each other up during this tough time and we pray that your father is reunited with his parents to enjoy the gravy that has been patiently waiting for him. He is no longer in pain, yet the pain is now laid upon your shoulders and we only hope that this pain is slowly swept away with happier times shared with him. We love you and are here for you anytime of the day.
