Josephine I'm so sorry to see the news about Tony. My condolences to you and the family. There are many times I go through memories of living on Mohawk St and our neighbors. Those were good times in our lives. Living out of town, unfortunately I will not be able to pay respects in person. Know that I will keep you and Tony in my prayers, may he RIP.
