April 9, 2018

EAST DURHAM, N.Y. (AP) — Five family members are being laid to rest a week after a fire raged through a home in New York’s Catskills region.

A funeral will be held Monday for Nicholas and Mary Mammano and their grandchildren: 7-year-old Sophia Mammano; 8-year-old Jayden Caffrey and 10-year-old Jonathen Mammano.

The children’s father was critically injured in the April 2 fire in East Durham.

The family’s obituary says Jonathen, a fifth grader, played in Little League, enjoyed model trains and dreamed of becoming an architect.

Jayden, an impish third grader, was artistic and loved reading.

Sophia, described as a smart and loveable first grader, liked playing with her dolls and dollhouse.
