I had the great pleasure in knowing Mr. Keyes. He was a good friend to my uncle Bugs, and Big John Geraghty and a lot of others in Morristown. He was one of the people that made Morristown a better place.....Long live his memory, RIP!

I have very warm feelings about my brother-in-law, Vint. He and Janet were witness at our wedding in Massachusetts. Just before the wedding started, he and I were standing in the alcove near the altar and he said, "You know how it is with us Catholics, we only do this once. So if you have any doubts, now is the time to run". I am very glad that I didn't run.
