When I think back, the best and happiest times in my life was at 11-13 years old. The friends and families that showed me so much kindness that I didn’t deserve. I lived 1 street over from Karen opposite direction from David B at 275 Magnolia Street. My family moved into that neighborhood when my mom was sick and dying of cancer. We had nothing as kids but we had everything in our innocence of friendship. The only solace we have is that Jon Cainello & Karen Lamantia, the biggest personalities of that neighborhood are now together and looking over all of us. God Blessed us all who knew them.
