On 1 February 2013 the Darien Times published this letter to the editor by Erica Jensen of Darien, Connecticut:
“My father has been very ill since suffering a heart attack in early December  and since then has had round-the-clock care.
“Last Saturday morning the nurse called me to say he had taken a turn for the worse and he could hardly swallow. My ill father asked to have my homemade cioppino, or fish stew, which was always his favorite dish.
“Knowing that I couldn’t grant that request quickly myself, I started calling several restaurants in the area to see if I could get ‘Cioppino to go,’ but unfortunately everyone was closed for lunch on Saturdays.
“Luckily, when I called Papa Joe’s Ristorante on the Post Road in Darien, [Connecticut] the owner answered. He told me they did not open until 5 pm for dinner but I told him I really needed fish stew right away for my sick father.
“He said, ‘Okay, come in 20 minutes.’ When I got there he wouldn’t charge me for the stew or accept my tip. I left in tears. That was the last meal my father ate.
“Joe Rivieccio, I cannot thank you enough for putting on your apron and cooking for me that afternoon. You were truly an angel — I will be forever grateful.
