According to a witness at the funeral for New York Post, “Tony, who was one of Carlo’s closest friends, walked right up to the priest and said angrily, ‘Excuse me, but this is not about you. It’s supposed to be about my friend, and if you can’t do that, maybe you should let someone else speak!'”
Moreover, the priest seemed disturbed by Danza statement.
“People were stunned, while the priest was visibly shaken. He tried talking about Carlo before quickly wrapping things up. Danza took over and eulogized Carlo with memories from their younger days.”
The writer died on Nov. 8 at 61 from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
