Gary, I was one of the two boys who lived next door to you on Sheridan Drive. You were my inspiration to play the sax. I am sorry for your loss. Your mother indeed lived a full life.

Barbara --we were friends at East School and beyond , I remember your
sister Kathleen very well. She was always so beautiful and cheery and then
when she married Bill- it seemed to make her more happy and cheerful.
Can you believe we all got to be this old. Our deepest sympathy to you and the family.
