    My heartfelt and sincere condolences to Mrs. Garono,Ralph,Lisa,Nora and the entire family. My fondest childhood memories that involved Mr. Garono are when he chuckled and called me “Hillbilly Jenny” because I never had shoes on during the Summer. I also loved when all the neighbors on Antoinette Drive gathered for a yearly street picnic. Rest in Eternal Peace ????✝️ and say hello to Mom for us ❤️
