Gary and I go way back in the early '40s when we wrer growing up on Hill Road on Mt Penn. We kept in touch over the years as his ?my life changed and drifted apart. We contacted more recently and talked about those old times. I am saddened by his and his wife's passing.I pray they are in a better/happier place together.
