My son Michael and Maurice were best friends when they were teens. His mom would come down to my house on Highpoint Rd. and ask my Dad were he and Michael were. Michael would go end up going home with Duca and alibi for him. He always got good eats fed to him by Maurice's Mom. Michael and Maurice wee speedsters on their motorcycles. I would see them going up and down Highpoint Rd. and never realized my son was flying by. I only saw Maurice flying up the road and I would comment to my husband that boy is going to get hurt on that Bike.
That's not what happened though.
God BLess Maurice.
