Several years prior to his death, Dad had me arrange for the erection of the headstone with his name, Mom's name and that of Dad's sister, Carmela "Toots" Lau. Toots has been buried at this plot since her death in 1961, when the small marker was placed. This was the grave site where Dad wanted to be buried, along with his wife.

When Dad finally died in 2000, Mom told my sister Jeanne and I that she had no intention of being put into the ground and wanted, instead, a mausaleum. It's a long story, but Jeanne and I decided it would be easier to please Mom and, contrary to Dad's wishes, we arranged for the purchase of a crypt in a mausaleum, in St. Gabriel's cemetery in Marlboro, rather than St. Joseph's. That's where Dad was placed and where Mom eventually joined him in 2009. They are not buried here. Toots is the only occupant of this multi-person plot.

However, when Toots' grandmother, Petronilla died in 1934, she was buried here, in this plot. Prior to his death in 1944, Ciro made arrangements to have her moved from here to the other plot where he and Louisa were buried. Petronilla's remains were transferred in March of 1945.
