I grew up across the street from the Salibas on Boxford Street in Lawrence. I remember how proud he was when he purchased a new black VW bug. He was always so pleasant. I also remember his sister Judy and brother Norman. His mom was always dressed to the nines and spoke with a Parisian accent. My thoughts and prayers to his family.
