Sitting around the table playing cards with the Mezatasta brothers Jack , Jimmy, Moose and Tony ( my father in law) is one memory I will never forget. Just a little advice ... NEVER RAISE IF A MEZATASTA IS AT THE TABLE. ( good way to end up "swimming with the fishes")

Through our younger years and into our teens, Jack and I were very close and did almost everything together. I could go on forever with so many stories but will only say what I regret the most. It has been 46 years since my family and I moved from Onio to New York and ending up in Baltimore. Over those years we saw each other many times. However, I can only imagine what our relationship would have been like as well as my relationship with my other brothers, Frank and James had I not moved from Lorain. If I had one wish it would be to bring back those years and make up for all that was lost.Jack, my prayers are and will always be with you.Your loving brother, Tony
