Carolyn, John, Ronnie and Angela, having grown up "in the neighborhood and knowing your Mom, was a special treasure that I always remember. She and your Grandmother helped our family many times. Growing up on E. King St. and knowing all the Pattons and Masi's and the closeness of all the neighbors there is something I will always treasure. It was unfortunate that I got to see you all again under these circumstances. Angela and Carolyn would love to keep in touch and catch up on the years.
