Becky, I'll always remember the big guy even before we became friends walking up to the soccer fields with your Mom to watch Brad play. He always had a kind word for Archie and I. He will certainly be missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace my friend.
I am sorry to learn of Steve's passing. We spent 9 years together at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in the same class and we were the best of friends. We then got back together in 1965 and spent 10 weeks together on active duty at Fort Sill. OK., and renewed our great friendship! He will always be remembered. Gabe Goglia
