My deepest sympathies to you Frank and your children. Anita and I pretty much grew up together and spent most of our time together from grade school till life took us in separate directions in our late teens. It’s been years since we’ve seen each other , but she has crossed my mind many times over the years. I am so grateful to have all the memories we’ve shared, and a box of notes we used to pass back and forth in high school. She will live forever in my heart. Rest In Peace my friend.
