85-year old gets birthday surprise


Phyllis Cagiano, of East Meadow, celebrated her 85th birthday on Feb. 25 and was surprised to receive three identical birthday cards from her sons.

She called the coincidence remarkable, adding, “it’s not your average birthday card. They had to read it to get it for me. To use the same card is unbelievable.”

Her children Ralph, Greg, Anthony and Marianne each gave her flowers as well because she once owned a florist business in Hicksville. Cagiano spent her birthday with her children and went to a dinner at Major’s Steakhouse in East Meadow.
