To the Connelly Family,
Sorry to hear about your dad. I grew up on Oakland Street and moved when I was 13. I remember alot of good times with friends and cousins. I used to iron for your mom. All the moms stayed home and visited all the time. There was a fire in the upstairs of our home we now rented. Your dad contacted the fire dept. I was living in Liverpool, NY on our way to church when we heard on the radio there was a fire at 158 Oakland St. It was alot of work helping my dad to get it back in shape again. Luckily no one was hurt. We lost my dad (Ralph) on Jan. 27, 2012. He was 90. Mom (Helen) is still in Beneva Lakes in Sarasota, Fl where dad was and she will be 90 Sept.27. Joan and Sheila are still in NY and George, John and myself are all in Florida. Our prayers are with you.
