my brother and i grew up next door to the platts, and they somehow managed to not only put up us, but to be great neighbors as well.
i still remember how good it smelled when mrs. platt would cook dinner, mr. platt's jeep, and the multitude of frisbees we lost to the juniper in their front yard.
my sympathies and best wishes to the family.
