I was sad to read in the Hicksville Illustrated News that Stella Gavril had passed away. I saw her often at the Cantiague Park Pool and we spent many afternoons together swimming, talking and playing cards. Stella had some problems in walking but it never prevented her from coming often to the pool. Sometimes, we got together after an afternoon at the pool and met for dinner at a restaurant. I will miss Stella very much. She was a wonderful lady. Despite age and walking problems, she never let anything stop her from coming to the pool and making people there feel happy; one of Hicksville’s best ladies.
