  2. Butch, Frank and Joey,

    I wanted to express my support to you over the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. I am confident that by now the sentiments that have poured in are overwhelming, there is something special within the Italian American community with regard to a son’s bond with his Mother. The one that rings true the most is that you’ll spend a lifetime looking for a woman that loved and cared for you like she did, usually never finding that again. I had the distinct honor of knowing both your Father and your Mother, to this day I look back and remember how wonderful your Father was to me at a time in my life where I was still searching for answers. His words of encouragement to me were like 24 karat gold and he made me feel like I was something when to be bluntly honest I was at a stage in my life where I was not worthy. Your Mother was sweet and kind, not unlike my Grandmother who Muff reminded me of a great deal. Anyway, I wish the three of you all the best, if I can be of service to you in anyway I’m a phone call away. God Bless and Godspeed. Chris Modesto

  7. My sincerest sympathy to the entire Corrodo Family. I have never ever met anyone like Muffy. We literally met at 35,000 feet…in an airplane and became instant friends. When my own mother passed away, Muffy became a surrogate mother to me. She gave me motherly advice and taught me many things. She taught me how to navigate New York City, how to make many wonderful Italian dishes, and many life skills. She taught me to try to stay positive during trying times. She was such a role model to me. We traveled together, laughed together and cried together as she missed her beloved husband Joe so much. She truly loved her family and friends and she was proud of everyone’s accomplishments. She enjoyed entertaining and telling stories of family and friends and was always up for an adventure! I know she is heaven with her husband Joe and all those that passed on before her. No doubt she has already prepared seven course Italian meals and has gotten those in heaven caught up on “news” here on earth. She may even have started a ceramic class! My memories of Muffy will be with me the rest of my earthly days and until we meet again “Mama Muffy”, love you! Your surrogate daughter, Marcia

  8. In 1995 I had only been with the company a few months when I was invited to the birthday of the owner. Having not come up through the ranks as everyone else I was considered an outsider by many. As my wife and I stood off alone I was told someone wanted to meet us. We were lead to a table where an elderly gentleman and his wife were seated. A hand was extended and the gentleman said.I’ve heard good things about you. His wife then said welcome to our family. I later learned it was Mr and Mrs Corrado. I have never forgotten the warmth and graciousness extended to me by these wonderful people.
