from 1963-65 I lived at Fort Bragg, 3 doors down from the Supulskis. Their daughter, Gwen, baby sat my 2 little girls, aged about 1 and 2. I remember the Supulskis so very fondly. When we all moved, she gave me a beautiful piece of coral from Hawaii and a beautiful branch of I don't know what wood but it serves as an Easter egg holder. The coral is a center piece on a bookcase. Mrs Supulski almost taught me to do the hula but Fort Bragg Theater was more my thing! To the lovely family, please accept my condolences. I know your loss is great. .... sincerely, Barbara Baroody
