    Dear Denise, My sympathy on the passing of your brother, Rich. He and I shared many adventures during our teens and beyond. Your family was very kind to me. I have vivid memories of winter weekends and summer weeks in Maine. I remember Rich and I going to the Rialto Theater every Saturday when we could, afternoons when we were kids and then, as we got older, the early bird evening show. So many wonderful memories from my Brookdale St. days. Skee
