We grew up across the street spending our summers at my grandparents. The Demaske’s were the best, Kathy and Cheryl; Andy Michael was just four when we started coming back. Between those guys and the Swestyn’s and the Dukat’s (sp) we had so much fun! Your mom and dad just included us as part of the gang. I’m sorry to hear of your dad’s passing, but will always remember your family as good people, good friends.
