  • Dear Roberta, Daniel, Brian and Morelli Family,
    My sympathy, prayers and condolences are with you all during this time of great loss. I can remember spending almost every Sunday morning at Avery Street with Carol and Mr. and Mrs. “M”, drinking tea and eating Kralich’s rolls. Growing up in the “Cove” we were all family to each other, Dennis was like a big brother to us. Our lives are better for knowing Dennis and the Morelli’s.
    A can of Pepsi and small bag of peanuts, that was Dennis. Rest in peace my friend I will miss you greatly.

  • Dear Mrs. Morelli,
    I have so many wonderful memories of Dennis, working with him and my dad, working with him as my boss… He was truly a great guy – decent and fair, with a wonderful wry sense of humor. I feel fortunate to have known him and am so very sad to hear that he has died. My mother, sisters and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
    With love –
