S.I. in a house on Richmond Rd. I went to school in Midland Beach to St.Margaret
Mary's which is the same church that I married my husband in more than 50 years
ago. It is so heartwarming to reminisce since moving to Florida some 30 years ago.
It all comes back as you turn the pages. I can remember my Mom taking us to the
boardwalk for strolls and to outdoor movies. I can even remember being taken to
see a silent movie on New Dorp Lane. Watching the Verrazano being built was very
thrilling. Living as a child in Midland Beach next to Miller Field and watching
the Italian prisoners of war exercising every morning. Ths Surf Club owened by a cousin of mine was great for pizza. Every page of this book is a memory and I feel
that John did a fabulous job in putting it together. Our oldest son Matthew was with NYPD and was killed on Feb. 14, 1999 and is buried in Moravian, so you can
understand that a very big part of my life is still there. We visit each and every
year in Feb. for a Memorial mass which our daughter-in-law has said for him and there is also a golf outing which is a benefit for NYPD widows. Staten Island will
always be my home away from home. Thank you John for composing this. The S.I. ferry was my mode of transportation every day of the week to go to work at the Irving Trust Co. I am at a loss looking for the page with a gentleman who was cutting hair. He is the late father of a close friend of our family. Thanks again and again for bringing it all alive. Roe Dziergowski
