I will miss my friend from Ridgefield Park NJ and the memories of old RPHS and a town we lived in at a gentler place in time. Our deepest sympathy to Barb and the family...may all of your memories be sweet. I am sure Bill is reading and collecting somewhere right now and perhaps riding in the old '58 Pontiac.
