I don't even know what to say in order to express what your family means to me. Your parents always treated me like I was one of the family. We lived in an attached house for many years and shared ups and downs and acted as siblings. Your parents were kind to me even when my own were not. I talk all of the time about how I miss our holiday get-togethers. I will never forget at Scotty's birthday party when Tony took me aside, put his arm around me, and said, "You know you are one of my boys." It brought tears to me then as his passing does now. My thoughts are with you all.

I will always cherish that my Uncle Tony was able to attend my wedding and that he danced with me to my dad's favorite song, sung by his son, Matthew. I am sad we didn't have more memories as I got older and will miss his smile. Rest Peacefully, Kim

I first met Mr. Kuczinski in July of 1973 when my family moved into the apartment above his deli, Ernie's, on Ave. N and E. 48th St. in Brooklyn. As a child of 10 at the time, I recall Mr. Kuczinski as being a very kind and generous gentleman. And so many kids! What a large, beautiful family! All of his children should celebrate his remarkable life as much as feeling any sadness, just knowing he is at peace in the loving arms of our Lord. He was definitely a man that loved his God. R.I.P., sir.
