We came to live on Boat Lane in Aug. 1995 with our 9-year-old son, Steven, and our 10-month-old daughter, Susan. As the years went by they were joined by Barry and Sherri and a number of hariy, wet-nosed tail-wagging additional family members. The years never really seemed to go by very quickly but they did. Boy Scouts, Brownies, 4-H, birthdays, happy times and some very sad times as well.
The street never seemed to change. Snow forts built in the middle of the street by children and fathers for snowball fights, while other parents were keeping a close yeye out for any cars passing through. Amazing block parities with kiddie costumes and bike and wagon parades, children and adult games (they had fun too), getting to see neighbors again after a long winter spring and new neighbors as well. Grucci had nothing on us, and dont forget the D.J. and the cake baking and dessert contests.
Alice Irwin Barnes, who grew up in Levittown passed away in November with her family at her side. She was 50.
A rare and aggressive carcinoid sarcoma was revealed during an unrelated surgery, and despite the best efforts of the excellent doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering, it was a short battle.
But the sorrow of Alice’s passing is tempered by the good she was able to do for those she left behind. “Alice was always taking care of other people, and never herself,” said her husband, George Barnes. “Even at the end, she was always very positive.”
