    Friends we've been since 7th. grade, where we met at Plant Jr. High School, W. Hartford ,CT. Every day we sat together in the lunch room and soon became best "Buds". After graduation we both went our separate ways but still managed to keep in touch . As you, Bev., have struggles in health these past many yrs. I have not forgotten you. I will love you forever and look forward to the day we will be reunited!
