Mr, D'Annolfo built our house on Northgate Rd in Stoneham. My Dad, Mario L. Binda, and my Mom, Florence L. Binda contracted with Mr. D'Annolfo to build our house. I was 13 or 14 at the time. I remember my mom and dad were very happy doing business with Frank. They said he was an honorable man. Rest in Peace, Sir. When I visit my mom and dad in Lindenwood Cemetery, I will be sure to visit Mr. D'Annolfo as well.
