EMS Procession For Paul Frontiero III

Our Paul asked us to document this last part of his son’s life.

Special thanks to Kim Smith, Father Matthew Green and Patricia Natti for providing pictures as well as the music. 

During the moving mass by Father Garibaldi, Patricia Natti sang Ave Maria which sent a chill up my spine. I obviously wasn’t about to whip out my camera to record it but was thinking of how nice it would have been to have as the backdrop to the video Paul asked us to take.  I said it to Kim Smith who was sitting next to  me at the time. 

After the ceremony the family gathered downstairs in the church where I ran into Patricia and Father Green who agreed to meet back at the church at 4:30 PM to record the audio for us.

I spoke to Paul and he sends deep thanks for such an act of kindness.

  • Thank you for sharing this with us.
    My deepest sympathy to the Frontiero family, I am so sorry for your loss.
    Mimi (Saunders) Pracna


  • Thanks Joey for the video. Thanks Kim, Father Green and Patti.
    Some people may think it was weird to ask for this but I think for his friends who couldn’t make it and for us who were there who did’nt see the procession it would mean alot.

    Thanks again.


  • I’m am deeply touched by this video . It is a wonderful tribute to Paul III. Patti’s rendition of Ave Maria is the best I’ve ever heard her sing – like an angel. Great job, Joey !!!!!
    May the Lord grant Paul and Kathy all the strength and serenity they need to weather the difficult loss of their beloved son.My prayers and empathy are with them.


  • I am speechless after viewing this video…my prayers go out to Paul’s family. Such beauty, so short a life…God Bless.


  • Thank you, what a moving tribute to our Hero….Paul rest in peace….


  • So moving and respectful of such a wonderful young man and his family.. Peace


  • patti has the voice of an angel………you have a heart of gold.
