Dear Fran and family,
With sudden sorrow, I read Lou's note about Nick's passing. Nick and I traveled the first 18 years or so of our lives in parallel. Living in Regent Square, we played about every sport together. Nick was a regular on the basketball court behind Wilkins School, a few doors from his home and where we went to first grade together.

Too many stories!

I knew most of the Moraytis extended family. Cousins, aunts, uncles all came by and when my parents moved closer to the Moraitis' home, I always dropped by to visit.

Please accept my sincere condolences. May my old friend Rest In Peace.
