  • I will remember you. Your photo has hung in Grandma's (your sister) house all my life. I've always known about you but, I had the privilege of hearing your story recently. A small town boy joining the ski patrol and going to Italy. You were 19 years old when you died...the first soldier from Long Lake, NY to be lost...
