I just read that Virginia

I just read that Virginia Furey has passed away. I have many memories of Virgina, her husband Ignatius and her daughters Pat and Joan from all our years at the 101st Street bungalows and at 8800 SFP when I lived in Rockaway with my parents Jim and Kay Mulvey and my brother Tom back in the 50's, 60's and 70's. My condolences to her family. I will always remember her. James F Mulvey Jr. Summit, NJ
