Thanks to Flojac1429@aol.com

"My dad, Antonio Mirolli, worked with Frank Cellini when they were both in 
their 80's to make a few monuments for their friends. My dad would design the picture and Frank would sand blast it. At first they were constantly at odds with each other but became very close friends. I recall visiting Frank's place which I believe was on 9th street. It was comical to see these crusty old guys kibitzing with each other."

Gene Mirolli,
