Many years have gone by since you moved into
the house in the back. Little did we know Alberta and I had been in the hospital at the same time, her having Paul and me having Donna. Alberta and Milt had also gone to school together. I knew you from my grandmother living across from your family on Tinkham St. Your family has many memories to help them through this hard time. Rest in peace. From the lady in the front.
