Jay ran with the Big Dawgs-the "In-Crowd"! He had it all.....Rich parents (They owned the Boars Head, the most exclusive restaurant in Dearborn Hgts., and the trailer park at the corner of Beech Daly and Warren), money (He ran the parking concession in the family restaurants parking lot-BIG bucks for him and his pals!), CARS  (He'd smash one up and have another new one within the WEEK!), girls, and TONS of friends. Everyone was envious of the guy. Funny, though.... right now I all I can think about is the poem "Richard Corey".....  .

Danny was one of my best friends in high school....Every morning before school, three of us-me, Danny and Ron Gruenwald ("Fred" to some) would meet at the Bronze Wheel for breakfast.We'd go out to Camp Dearborn, and other places together...he attended my wedding, showing up in platform shoes and a dark blue velour tuxedo! He had a huge head of long curly hair which made him look like  a rock star! After Ron passed away, however, things changed between us....I think it may have had something to do with me reminding him of Fred and our times together. In any event, we drifted apart despite my efforts to stay connected. I just learned of his passing recently when I visited this site again after a long absence from here. I miss you Dann-o!
