Dearest Anna, I so enjoyed speaking with you, from time to time, the past year or so, after your beloved Christine passed. The memories we shared about the "old days" in Lindenhurst, when Chris and I were just kids, will be forever in my heart. You always welcomed me into your home, fed me, lol, and allowed me to spend so many wonderful times with my first love, your special daughter. I think of those days often and fondly. My condolences to Lou, Chuck, Christine's children, and the grandchildren. Time passes quickly, life changes, but, the memories of those days, are lasting and warm. With love and remembrance, Tony Brunone
