Memories of your Mom and Dad and growing up on Birch Brook are ever special. The portrait of them on Lisa's FB page is just marvelous - brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. Much love and many hugs to you all. They're together again, and I'm sure my Dad welcomed them with drinks for all! All my best. John :)

Dear Family of Claudia: I met Claudia Garon and her beloved husband Joe through the Fordham University Alumni connection. Joe was the National Chairman of the Fordham University Alumni Federation and she was the First Lady in the finest sense of the name. She was always gracious and welcoming at all the many Fordham events that they helped organize or presided over, including reunions, athletic social events, cultural and academic occasions and the University Commencement where Joe represented the 100,000 living alumni. They were a magnificent couple and as a loyal graduate she threw herself into every occasion as hostess, cheerleader, introducer of newcomers, and confidant of oldtimers. Always ready with a smile and a warm gesture she was the epitome of a sophisticated Fordham graduate. They were both dear friends of the late Ralph DeMayo, certainly at the very top of the alumni directors that Fordham has ever enjoyed (and they have had great ones) and together the 3 of them made a great team. Thank you for sharing her with the thousands of Fordham alumni over the years. May the Angels lead her into Paradise.
