"My husband and I met in the summer of 1984 at a Catholic Singles dance at the Rye Town Hilton. My husband is from Mount Vernon and I'm from Brooklyn.

My plans were originally to go to Georgia to visit some relatives, but my plans changed, and instead I decided to go to the dance along with three other Brooklyn girls. There was quite a crowd present that evening. As I was walking across the room, a young man came over to me and introduced himself and invited me to have a drink with him. We chatted for quite a while that evening. He asked me for my phone number and soon after, we started dating.

He had to drive to Brooklyn every time to pick me up for our dates. Four months later we were engaged, and less than a year later, we were married. God blessed us with three beautiful children. We moved to the town of Eastchester in 1994 where we still reside with our family and our sweet rescue dog. "
