  • Growing up on Rogers st / Perkins st neighborhood your pals were so important and to a higher degree their parents. My sisters and I were so lucky to have the Depolo family in our circle. Mr Depolo (I couldn’t bring myself to call him Leo until I was 50) was a loving father and trusted guardian to all who entered their home. Thanks for putting up with us from the backyard carnivals and shows to endlessly being in and out of the house. 22 Perkins st will always hold a special place in my heart ❤ To Mrs D (Mary) , Michael, Sandra, Diane and my dearest friend Leah thanks for sharing such a wonderful person with us.
