Have a. Great birthday. My sister Alice died in Feb. I am still in mourning. But life in Chicago is very nice. In synk with my personality needs. And not that cold. Just not enough sun. I take extra vitamin D3. How are you and the freak neck crew? And your brother?

Did I read correctly that you are fighting cancer. I ask because a disproportionate number of women who after high school lived in or around great neck got cancer. Are you aware of this?

You sound like you have avoided all the stresses that inform my life, my being. A welcomed read. Thanks for sharing. My memory is very strong vision, my hearing are weakening significantly. Maybe I need alittle more sun and less Chicago winter.

So nice to remember you on your special day. This web site keeps us all connected to each other and our past. When your name comes up I am flooded with memories. Shared. Like the Pasley(sp?) dress that hung in your closet waiting for me.
Have a wonderful day
