    I know it has been many years, but when I saw that Tony Abbene had passed, my mind took me back to the Matteras on Elmwood Ave. and the Abbenes and Belmontes on Cummings Ave. Let me speak for the Matteras in sending our condolences to your family…Florence, Pamela, and especially Skip… (seeing you years back at the sporting goods store.) Again, sincere sympathy.
