    Vicenza and Family, I smiled when I saw your dad's photo because now he is with his "Rose". My husband Nick and I lived in the house on Brinckerhoff in the 70's and greater landlords we couldn't have had. Cherish the special times you had over the years and take comfort in your faith and knowing that they are together again. Fondly, Beverly

    Felix and my dad John Stone were best buddies at St. Joes. We shared many great memories and laughs. He was a great man and friend..
