Adopt Me!

She’s a sweet and friendly cat. Her owner apparently decided that she no longer wanted her anymore (since GB doesn’t already have enough issues with stray/feral cats), and put her out on the street; however, she is declawed so she can’t defend herself against anything. I would take her myself, but we just […]

Good Bye Papa Lee – from the Leone’s

Longtime resident and community activist, Joseph D. Leone, suffered a massive heart attack and after two days of hospitalization, he succumbed in the presence of his loving and loyal family, on September 28th 2010. These are the comments and eulogy the family would like to to share with the community that showed “Papa” Leone love.

Good Bye Papa Lee – Written by Joe Leone, Jr.

On September 28, 2010 my dad Joe Leone passed away. Six years ago I was a Vice President and Tax Manager for the Bank of New York. I left a full time job because I knew my father was aging and needed my help with his business, of which I had helped him with since I was 14 years old, over 40 years now. Despite the financial hardship it would cause her and I, fortunately, my beautiful wife Cindy was loving enough to understand what I needed to do. It was the best decision of my life because I was able to work with and spend the last six years of my life with him. Previous to that, when I was working at the Bank, I rarely saw him once a month and also on Holidays. In His Loving Memory, I vow to continue his Tax and Accounting business for this community. My new associate will be handling the insurance and annuity part.

For those of you that didn’t make the Funeral Mass, the Eulogy which was done by nephew Josh is below.
