Gennaro Mauro (1956)

Florine was quite a woman. I remember her attending our 25th reunion & she won the honor of the classmate

who traveled the most distance. She had flown in from Paris to attend our reunion, I believe she was working

for Bell at the time. Another of her many talents she had was the art work on the store front windows on

Kensington Ave at Christmas time. It was a privlege to have known her for as long as I have because I lived

just two streets away on the 2100 block of Somerset st.
