- The loss of a child is the loss of innocence, the death of the most vulnerable and dependent. The death of a child signifies the loss of the future, of hopes and dreams, of new strength, and of perfection. - Arnold and Gemma 1994, iv, 9, 39
Dion was our son who had become the bravest person I have ever come to know.He fought a 3 year battle with cancer that he could not win,but he would never hear that,he was detemined.He was one of the kindest kids you could ever meet,he could find nothing but good in everyone and tell you why.We miss him terribly and so do many of his many great cousins and friends who support us everyday you all are so great thank you so much.Love you my Hero!
I love u Joe! And miss you so much! You were always a great friend! =))
My family and I attended the Angel Walk. I have never experienced anything so moving and special. It was an emotional day but also a very rewarding day.
My hats off to Mr. Resciniti, his family and all the people that helped. My family will be back next year but planning on bringing double the people. This year, there were 23 in our group!
Hello Mr. Resciniti – I have followed your organization sines it’s inception. I liked the old website as it had a easy and less confusing menu. The new site has more content but it seems less personal. My biggest dissatisfaction is the fact there is no music. I am sure you know how important it is to us bereaved parents. I used to leave the website on, turn up the speakers and played all the songs.
I hope you bring back the music and If you do, I have a few recommendations for some new songs.
Kenny, Thank you for feedback. We are currently working on this issue. When the site was first launched we experienced some problem with site when the music player was activated. We posted some tips to help when the music player is not displaying the site properly. Thank you for your feedback we strive to make this site better and we can only do that by listening to your feedback. Walter, Site Webmaster
My wife and I just read your entry titled: My Bobby, My Son, My Baby. It brought us to tears. It’s been almost three years since we lost our beautiful daughter, Cynthia, yet the agony never ceases. It would be good to talk with you again.
This was one of the best and most humbling events I have ever attended. Amazing day! God Bless all the Angel families
What an amazing event! We came all the way from Naples in the rain for this walk. Mitch Carmody did some songs and spoke so nicely. I can’t believe I finally met Joe Rose! What a great guy.
The Resciniti’s were cordial, warm and it was so heartfelt.
We will be back every year – rain or shine!

Just wanted to tell you that the Angel Walk was Wonderful, to look at the amount of people that showed up to represent their loved ones or being there to support a love one was Fantastic, it’s a club like no other, If I had the power to change things, I wouldn’t want anyone to be part of this Club but reality is, that this is part of life, I’m so proud to be part of this club where you feel loved, cared about, understood and most of all; you don’t feel alone….you are doing such a wonderful job, I’m amazed. God continues to bless you tremendously…You are such a inspiration, unique, sweet and loving person… I Love you and your family very much and my family enjoyed and loved seeing you.
I know in order to juggle everything you do; events, picnics, fundraising, golf tournaments, advertisement, a job, friends, family, and not to dismiss, dealing with your OWN feelings of missing Bobby and keeping your head up at all times, must be very difficult and exhausted, I know it’s not easy, but you do it like the CHAMPION that you are!!! Keep up the good work Bob, look at what you have accomplish………..It’s HUGE, you have helped and are helping and will continue to help so many people. Love you and God Bless you and your family always…That’s always my prayer from me to you.
Bobby you are truly amazing! You outdid last year. Next year you might need the whole park. We are so proud of you. The void that has been filled from the loss of Bobby is nothing short of a true sign from God. The loss of Bobby has created a feeling of unity and friendship. We are not in this club alone. You have given the broken hearts a place to heal and cry.
Thank you, we love you.
T.A. and M.A.
Thank you very much again for letting us be apart of this special day! It was so beautiful and so nice to see everyone’s continuous love and support even after seven years!! We look forward to next year! Thanks again!
Good afternoon Bob,
I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing weekend with Mitch and then the Angel Walk on Sunday. It was overwhelming as this was my first. The outpour and support from everyone is absolutely over the top. After seeing the over 400 signs was breathtaking that I’m not exactly sure what to say. You and your family are also quite amazing and I respect so much what you are doing for your Bobby and all the other families too! You’ve made us feel like we are part of everything you are doing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I look forward to seeing you again soon.
With Warmest Regards,
Dear Bob, Diane, Michelle, your beautiful organization,
Many many thank yous from Monica, Lisa, and me for all you have done to make this a very memorable trip. We so enjoyed dinner on Friday, the Marriott is great. The many beautiful signs for my Precious Jessica, my sweet mama, and cousin Jeremy (all gone too soon). This has been very special for all of us. Meeting Mitch was a privilege I will remember. The entire trip is unforgettable.
Many hugs and much love,
Again, I cant tell you how many people’s lives this event changes. I saw it first hand from the group that I brought. Some were hesitant to join us but are so happy that they did.
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!!!!!
Well Bob, another day of success in the growth of a family’s love and support for others, that have suffered a loss. The Healing Heart Foundation continues to express the most valuable gift of all, Love! I continue to be amazed by the growth of what you, Diane, the kids, and of course “Bobby”, have built.
It seems like yesterday, when I looked into the eyes of a man, that was lost, hurt, devastated, with no where to turn. Today, I still see the hurt, the devastation, but I also see a vision. A vision to be a help line for many, and when I say many, if you stepped back today and looked around, you would see the lines of faces from all around. Faces that are finding the healing through Resciniti’s love!
Thank you for what you do!
Thanks again for making today possible for me- You have a beautiful family, and I feel very blessed to be walking this journey knowing you are all there to support us.
Love you guys and congratulations on an outstanding turnout!
Your love never ceases to amaze!!
Dear Bob and Diane,
We cannot thank you enough for the opportunity you have extended to us this weekend. Being a part of this Celebration of Life was amazing both for my husband and myself. I don’t know how it was that we never met but I feel blessed. Like we say in our Compassionate Friends meeting, I am sorry for the reason we are here but I am glad we found each other to lean on.
It was so awesome seeing Mitch as well. My daughter and I never miss his workshops. We will be attending our 4th TCF conference which will be in Boston this year. As for your event next year, please count on the support of my husband and I in whatever you may need. I am excited to form a team next year.
Thank you again for everything! Please share with Mitch the photos attached as I don’t have his email address. I tried tagging you from our Fan Page FB (Anthony’s Light) but it did not allow me.
We want to thank you for a beautiful, wonderful day. This entire weekend was very special. I feel so much closer to Ben right now than I have since he passed away on 10/1. Again thank you for the wonderful things you do.
A.P. and S.W.
Wow, do you see what LOVE has done.
The love of Bobby and his father is so deep it has affected 1000’s of people. There is no stronger bond between a parent and a child than what I witness through “The Healing Hearts Foundation. I have met so many loving parents that are all left broken hearted. The difference is that it took one little boy (Bobby) to show us all how much love our hearts can hold. And one broken hearted father to bring us all together. That is powerful.
Dion, the love we have for you is just as powerful. We are blessed to have Bob & Diane as friends and to be a part of honoring all of our children. D, there where so many pictures of such beautiful angels. It was such an amazing eye opener. I am not alone, but my pain is my own. No one can make the pain go away. No one can make things right.
We go on and day by day we learn to live with that pain, but it has not gotten easier or better. People say that time heals all, I hope they are right,
Dion, I just wanted to let you know that as always you are in my heart. Your presence is felt and I know that you are close. Please try to stay near. I need to have you in and around me to get through the day. Send lots of warm hugs.
Love you Big!
I just wanted to say thank you for including my late brother, John S.
Marrone in the angel walk! A family member was at the walk and noticed
a pic of my brother and contacted us about it… What a nice surprise!!
Thank you! J.M.

Again, I cant tell you how many people’s lives this event changed. I saw it first hand from the group that I brought – some from Ft. Meyers, Miami and local. Some were hesitant to join us but are so happy that they did. L.M.
I have been trying to get an email to you but I really wanted to have the time to pay it the proper due and that is now..
As Bob knows, my son (angel) Vincent has been at the walks even though I was not until this year.
The first walk, my girlfriend told me about the day after my first visit to Bobby’s Place.. I sent a picture and she walked to represent.
The second walk, I sent a picture and received a call that morning from a girlfriend who said she saw the picture and had his name on her shirt.
This year I walked and I have to say that I was totally in awe of the event!! It was just my year.. I was stronger and did my first walk of this nature on my son’s birthday this past Oct. 13, in WPB the “Out of the Darkness Walk”.. in honor of Suicide Prevention and I did the same walk in November in Fort Lauderdale; in March, “Daniel’s Dash” a 5K to raise concussion awareness and of course the Angel Walk this month. (all of these walks involved new friends who have lost their children).
I have to say, I also thought it was a great touch to have the humane society there. We have had our first dog ever for about two years now and she has been the best therapy ever. It added a bit of ease to the day as well.. of course the food was great and just the number of sponsors who went out to support. I listen to Paul and Young Ron all the time.. and now I love them more!!
Of course there were tears and sadness all mixed with the joy and love we all share for life and the ones we love!!! However I have to say without a doubt the best thing was to go to Butterfly World!!! I had not been in ages nor was it on my list of things to do.. but now that I have a new-found love for Butterflies, since once greeted me when I went to visit where my son took his last breath, I have a huge fascination and find a newfound peace with them that is just indescribable. Just took my breath away!!!
Also the fact that you were able to make a sign for Maria’s – Nicole the next day was just, I mean, too awesome!!!
It was so busy and emotional and all I totally forgot to look for Marsha.. I really wanted to say hi and thank you for all your help in this..
Anyway just thank you sooooo much for everything and the amazing work you do and so excited that Bobby’s legacy and all our children’s life really do live on!!!
Bob, you are the man!!
Dear Bob, family and all the wonderful volunteers.
The Angel Walk was my first after losing my daughter 4 years ago. I must say, to say it was amazing is an understatement. It was so moving & heartfelt. Words can’t describe the feeling when I came across my daughters Angel Sign. I stopped, prayed, took pictures and spent time reflecting on the better days we had. It was emotional but at the same time, very fulfilling. The entire day was magical. Walking the angel trail made me realize, I am not alone in my pain and suffering. I can’t thank you enough for doing this wonderful walk for all our angels. I will be back with many family and friends and I came all the way from New York to be at the walk!
God Bless you and most sincerely,
Scott and Eve are awesome, committed people that give their time unselfishly to the foundation.
Miss you Joe.

My first best friend when i moved to florida, miss you
Thank you for all your support given to myself Eileen Kreycik, Celeste Barnes and are precious little ones. We are so thankful and appreciative. Your foundation and “Bobby’s Place” is a wonderful resource and great tribute to your wonderful son. I only hope I can fulfill my son’s legacy’s, as well as, you have Bobby’s. Thank you again and we will be in touch.
Happy Birthday Jessie! ♥️
I read this post a few years ago and re-read it from time to time thinking of the loss Jeremy’s parent must feel. Jeremy and I were pledges at Delta Chi and I remember him well. We lost touch around the same time he left UF and thinking of his passing makes me incredibly sad. As I remember Jeremy he was intelligent, fiery and loyal to his friends and family. The world is a lesser place without him in it.
Love you Zachary, miss you so much
But daddy knows you are with me all the time. If I Only Could get a hug from heaven.
Hello I am so glad I found Bobby’s Place. Something directed me to your page a divine guidance I truly believe. I am an angel mom the loss of my 27 year old daughter Carly Marie still has me in a numb fog. It will be 11 years on April 3rd Carly was called to Heaven. I started a group on Facebook called Parents who have lost children(missing our angels) It has been so helpful for me, other angel moms and dads. Infact we feel more family than a group that is how much we need each other. I was so impressed with your angel walk day.I do have alot of parents in my home city that our angel parents.Also many around the world the reason is we keep saying we all need to get togethwr. So many of us have not met physically. I just thought if you had time to connect with me.I love your Bobby’s Place the picture looks so comforting.I would love to have a place where parents could come and feel at home. A place to talk to each other. Keeping our children’s legacies alive its so important we all find that so many people run from us.We are a forgotten group of moms and dads. Sincwrely, Deb
I miss you baby boy! It’s been 12 and a half years and it still feels like yesterday. I miss you more with each passing day. I know that you are in heaven smiling down at me and watching over me, your sisters, brother and nieces. We won’t leave out your soon to be twins niece and nephew. We all miss you dearly but I know you are in a better place where there is no stress playing ball and seeing Jesus everyday. Must be nice, I envy you! I love you son and know that I’ll never ever forget about you!! See you in Heaven!
I lost my son Dustin at the age of 24. It has been 10 years. Everyday is the same for me. Unless you walk in these shoes …. no one knows. Ann Miller did a wonderful job describing how I feel. Thank you Ann
We’d love to participate. Hope it happens this year. <3
