I have fond memories of Thanks Giving Day at Deer Drive. It was always festive, joyous and fun. I can recall the days when Uncle Fred and Aunt Nancy were building that home. I believe Aunt Nancy fractured an arm during the construction. I also admired their passion for sailing. But as anyone who knows our extended family, we a have a bit of salt water running through our veins. It is part of our heritage. Aunt Nancy was always sweet, gracious and had the cutest laugh. This also reminds me of the family get togethers at Grandma and Grandpa's home on Rollstone Ave, W. Sayville. All great memories. Now the entire family is together once again in heaven, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Ruth, Aunt Ester, my father, Herbert and Aunt Nancy. My they all rest peace together an look over us all. My thoughts and prayers are with my cousins and their families as Aunt Nancy's life is celebrated on this day. Peace and love to all.

I will never forget the week I spent at my aunt's home in Mattituck. They gave me the opportunity to sail their small sunfish sailboat. That was so much fun for a 12 year old and I will never forget that summer.
My most sincere condolences. Mrs. Rudolph was Our neighbor and friend in Mattituck for many years.
