Our mothers pushed baby carriages with us as infants. We played as children as soon as our parents let us out of the yard. Our imaginations were unlimited. We would invent games and were very competitive. At St. Raphael we enjoyed the much needed discipline (me especially). We double dated , got married, raised families, and remained friends. Even after Dick moved we kept in touch. Less than a week before he left us, we chatted by phone. We both said, "It's so good to hear your voice"! Little did we know...….. I will miss him a lot !!
