Eulogy for Former New Rochelle Mayor Frank Garito

He looked good the last time I saw him, then again, he always looked that way. In fact, he looked better in death than many of those who came to mourn him looked in life. His life was full of wakes and I know of no one who went to more. The difference was this wake was his own. Whether he himself dressed up for the hundreds and hundreds of wakes or countless numbers of socials, he dressed to the nines and his mere presence lit up many a room and lifted the hearts of all those who knew him. If there were a GQ for seniors, he could have been on the cover.

Since I became a County Legislator, it's been my priority to stand with and support our police officers, correction officers and firefighters. We're very lucky these brave men and women put their lives on the line for us each day.
