Mrs. Piano, Lynn, Karen, Susan and your families,
I have many fond memories of spending time at your home on Chelsea Court. Whether it was hanging with our friends, hanging at the pool, or Karen's sweet 16 party, we always had a great time. Your family always made us feel welcome. I remember how good it was coming home after a basketball game in high school, catching a ride in the Piano cadillac and having Mr. and Mrs. Piano share kind stories of our games. Most times, it was better than the locker room pep talks from coach. Hold on to those memories and be grateful for those special times you shared with him. Thank you all, especially Karen. for sharing your father with me. Lynn Dupuis Benusa
