He's a fellow parishioner at Trenton Sacred Heart Church with whom I became acquainted with some 10 years ago. Carl founded the locally known Amoroso Flower Shops in the city of Trenton. The above is a composite vignette of that late lamented high school whose sports teams frequently removed the sting from my Hamilton High "Hornets."
Although Carl presently runs the florist shops, they were "founded by his
grandparents. After they died, his sister Ann who lived on Lalor St. next to the
greenhouses, and shop there with her husband Ray Bystricki opened up the 2nd
shop on South Broad across from the Court house in what was originally Jahos
brothers Men's clothing store. Carl took over after Ann, and Ray passed
away. Carl is a fine young man who knows the trade well
