  • Sabber, it is a long time since we lived on Sadie Street. The fun we had as cousins growing up on the same street. I remember our first day of school with Mrs. Makoski. We were sure something. Funny how it seems like yesterday. Just an old man saying goodbye. Love you!

  • Sandy, you were first my teacher and then my friend. We've journeyed through life together for the past 47 years and I miss you and I will never forget you. Your pain and suffering have ended, May you rest in peace, and I hope Max is at your side. Your friend always, Ann
