    A Morris Park legend has passed. “Freakin’ Fanelli” was truly a legend. May he rest in peace.

    The end of an era , might sound cliche but Nkomoe the less a fact where Tommy was concerned . He was one of those guys who gave a color or identity to the neighborhood . A live wire who was great to converse with and always on board for a good laugh , a good time and a good suggestion . Would see him out walking many a morning at what many would consider an ungodly hour as vibrant and chipper as if it were midday . All the best Tommy , it was a pleasure to know you . God bless you always .
