To the Editor
On behalf of John DeCosta’s family, I’d like to thank the people that came out to honor him. The moving tribute both at the funeral home and the day of the funeral by the Fire Department, the Highway Department, and the Police Department filled our hearts with gratitude during this sad time. The Crossed Ladder Salute provided by the Marion and Fairhaven ladder trucks was spectacular! John would have been humbled and overwhelmed by the honor bestowed upon him. Mattapoisett is truly special!
