    This is a current image of the house we lived in between 1945-1950, of course, the neighborhood was far nicer then.

    The house to the right was the home of my best friend, Paul Elias. Paul's family was Lebanese and completely foreign to me given my Southern culture, i.e., they spoke a different language, they were dark-skinned, had black hair, they displayed their Catholic, religious artifacts, ate tabouli, sucked raw eggs and burned incense sticks...

    Upstairs there lived a family called, "?Falk?", whose teenage daughter, "Billie Bea", was probably my first baby-sitter. I remember she retrieved for me an autographed picture of the "Lone Ranger", portrayed by Clayton Moore and I was so excited - wonder what happened to it? Her mother would throw down to me Hershey bars from their upstairs apartment back porch when I was playing in the backyard ... DAH

    Mom & Dad's first house in Florida which cost them &17,500. We moved-in during early November, 1957 and as it turned out during an unusual cold spell. I remember freezing my ass off because the house's flooring was terrazzo and there was only ONE wall heater in the entire house. Neither was there air conditioning. I still remember sweating to death during the summer months and through September & October which were the most humid.

    Never did like that house...

    "Dear David,

    While going through my mother's photo album I found these pictures taken August 1973. I remember their visit, your dad was having a severe bout with bronchitis.

    Spoke with cousin Pearl the other day. She told me about your wife's passing. So sorry. May God bless you.

    Sincerely,

    Cousin Joe"
