Hello Rick Rossi. Very sorry to hear about your father. He was born in 1927 the year my mother was born. She passed away two years ago when she was 90 years old. When you are in Enfield please contact me because since my mother’s death I’m living in the Smyth House on Enfield Street and Oliver Road I would like to show you the renovations. I will speak to Mary about your father too. Take care I know these times are not easy. Tim Smyth @ 646 228 8940.
