Remember well that sweet pretty little girl. And growing up on the street behind the Ferendellis. Such a lovely family and Rene was my little brother Danny's first love. We lost him in 1962. But they shared a lot of memory's over the years at St. Joes along with Ed Wood! My deepest sympathy to the entire family.

My family rented an apartment from Irene's uncle Pete in 1952. My mother walked Irene and I to kindergarten at the old 5th Street School. She and went to school together for the next 12 years too -- at Saint Joseph's and Gorman. Lotsa memories. One of the best is Sunday dinners on Linden, Helen would cook pasta and chicken. Yum!
