I am honored to call you my Great-Great Grandfather! Family hero stories always include you and the many great deeds you had accomplished for your community. Including the service and generosity of your dear wife Eva, in the neighborhoods in which you lived, the Bronx and in your church community. I am happy to be able to share your legacy with my own children and our extended family. It is a large posterity that you have now. We look forward to meeting you on the other side of this life!
