    Dave, I just now discovered your passing. We were very good friends from about 1954- 1958. We use to go to White Plains to buy stamps from Julius Wolfe’s shop on Williams Street and Nat Birman’s shop on Main Street. We use to get to class early in the morning. You were a grade ahead of ( you 5th grade and me in the 4th grade.) I use to do the same morning work with you and then it in to your teacher. You taught me how to do the Lindy and Algebra. I had a hell of s time with both. I remember I use to walk your paper route with you and you’d stop about half way for you to have a smoke. I can’t imagine that you carried that nasty habit into adulthood. We did so many things more ... I could go on and on. I don’t know if your sister Susan is still alive. Maybe she will see this note. I remember more specific things we did as kids than any other childhood friends. It was a great time in my life
