Hi Phyllis! I was so sorry to read this news. I was looking for information on the two boys who died during hurricane Sandy and I saw your name. I wish I had known. I would have certainly been there for the wake and funeral. God bless you and your family and if I can ever do anything for you please call: 279-6390. Love Alma Quinlan
