Condolences to the Ferrigno Family especially my kindergarten classmate Doug. Mother Ferrigno was a very special part of the Hillside community who warmed and welcomed everyone she came in contact with. I recall seeing her several times at the Recreation offices and she always loved talking about her kids and their friends, recalling them as a very special part of her life. Every community is held together by the glue of special people and she was very special. She always let you know that you had someone there cheering for you and doesn't that mean something to everyone?
