Time passes way too quickly. I remember the good old days in the 1960's when we were neighbors on Trebor Drive, and our Moms formed a friendship that lasted the rest of their lives. I remember my friend Danny, and his older brother Steve who I always admired and looked up to. I remember the dark blue '64 GTO that I thought was the coolest car in the world, and that great swimming pool that you had! Sure wish all of those who have gone could still be with us. Deepest condolences to a great family.
