Dear Friends and Neighbors- It is with much sorrow that I report the passing of Thomas Labetti. Tommy passed peacefully this afternoon with his family at his bed side. The full details of the services are not yet available. It is expected that Tommy will be at Chappy’s Funeral home on Montauk Highway Saturday and a Funeral service is expected at Our Lady of Lourdes on Monday. The family is considering requesting donations in lieu of flowers so please wait for details. In addition there is a fund raised being planned. I would like to continue the meal chain as the family will need our support In their time of sorrow. https://carecalendar.org/v2/calendar.php?month=09&year=2012 Jeanne-Marie
