Adriano was a very special person.
He left an unforgettable impression with all that had the pleasure to have known him.
He has touched our hearts and will forever remain there.
May God keep you by his side.
Your funeral was beautiful.
We will miss you.
Rest in peace.
Until we meet again, Enjoy the Fosters.

Naturally, Adriano had a helmet on while riding.
That could have saved his life.
But he'd rather blow the 35 dollars on instant stratch-offs from the NY Lottery.
Now instaed of being a Red Dog, he's a Dead Dog now.
Hey Purell23,
Do you think you're funny?
What are you, some kind of clown?
Congratulations! you just won MY Lottery.
Lets get together so I can give you your prize, JACKASS!
Do us all a favor.
Do something with your meager existence and leave good people alone!

Adriano was and always will be a beautiful soul. There is no one who is as sweet and kind as he was. We know he is looking out for his family and friend's. He is our guardian angel.

hey there moshpitt these are not threats THEY ARE A is the ignorance of people like yourself that do not understand the feelings of the loss of a loved one like Adriano and if you were in our shoes you would understand what his family and friends are going thru takes alot to type your b.s. about levittown not being this or that when you have no idea on what your culture is about MR or should i say MRS.

When gas hits ten bucks a gallon, there are going to be a lot of fat american butts on bikes, and maybe then people will start using some care.

I feel very sad about this death. I give my condolences to all of his family and friends.Bicyles are death machines do not ride them in traffic. Only ride them in parks away from cars. People are driving their 2000 pound pickups,vans at excessive speed,talking on their cell phone eating their fast food,putting on their makeup,playing with their cds,half asleep. You have no no no chance on a bicyle if you are hit. Dont ride one in traffic. It is to dangerous. Beware my friends. The insane incompetent drivers will kill kill kill you.

Adriano, it's been a long time since we saw each other. I just thought of you earlier that week and wondered what you were up to. It was a sad day when I heard the news. It was tough realizing we would never catch up on old times again. You were one of the funniest guys I ever met! Your laughter was contagious and always cracked me up! Thanks for all the hard work (and the fun) we all had at my dad's store. God Bless You and your family.

To Mr & Mrs. Terranova, Ignazio and Fabrizio: I'm sorry about Adriano and I hope you find peace. God Bless You.

This is very sad. I did alot of business with Adriano in the city. Most of us have the same passion for life as Adriano but we dont openly display it the way he did. You saw his love for life 24/7! He is asleep now. He made me laugh so much! Yes Im sad but when I start thinking about him I have to smile and even laugh because he made me do so much of this when he was alive!
Arrive'derci Adriano.

I was an old childhood friend of Adriano.He was hilarious and humorous.I was friends with him a good number of years and I surely enjoyed being friends with him. As the years passed on Adriano did stop making an effort in staying in-touch. I felt bad of losing a cool dude but in a lot of ways I did understand.We kind of all have to go our seperate ways.He never seperated from my heart.Adriano was a person that "made a difference",honest,admitt ed when he was wrong,concerned, funny and much more. His mom is very sweet,and his father(Nino) is very caring and respectful to people.Nino is like a dad to everyone.Nino is the best bakery chef in the universe.Adriano was a guidance for people. Adriano Thank You for your support.I love you. You will always be Alive in my heart.God Bless You.

Adriano was sensational. He could get girls like anything. Good family values to his family and relatives. Make his friends crack-up and help people go in the right direction.Knowing Adriano was a gift.

Mr. and Mrs. Terranova, Ignazio and Fabrizio I am realy sorry for your loss but remember he will always be alive in yourself and you will always have your memories of Adriano. God bless Adriano and may you all find Peace.

I know some time has passed since this horrible tragedy. I was there that day, soon after the accident occured. I have thought about it so often and my eyes fill up with tears often when I pass the place where it happened or even when I see a bus. I wanted to know more about him and often told my children I wanted to know who the family was and tell them how very sorry I was for their loss. I found this site tonight, while I was thinking of him again. Adiano sounds like a wonderful person, which makes the loss even more deeply felt. I want you to know that people were there that day, mourning him and sending up prayers for Adriano and his family. God bless you all.
