  2. We had so many shared moments in high school. All the long walks to North Hornell you with your sweetheart and me with mine. Also all the great get together’s at your house when we would all roar over the latest Bill Cosby satires. It was always fun in choir and we all loved it when we got to sing at the special events for the rotary and various groups in town. You were a leader and a good friend to so many of us. Loved watching you play basketball ,you gave it your all. You were a very special person. RIP You will be missed.
