Very sorry to learn of Eugene’s passing.
Great memories of the care and generosity of the entire Moran family when I was growing up in Brightwaters.
Especially memorable were the many summer days my brother Vinny and I spent with Peter playing and swimming at the Moran home. Also, they took us on numerous boat trips on the Great South Bay. Please convey my condolences and thank you especially to Honey, Christine and Peter.
