I hope you remember me. I went with Homer in grade school at Tilton School. I know Peter Basile and happy to hear that Leonore and he married. I spent sleepovers at their house. I think Stella was around 4 or 5 years old. I am so sorry to hear about Homer. I have had thoughts of him and the many friends that I made there. Leonore, remember Janice Shanks? Well she lived inthe same town that I lived in inArkansas. Number is 870 269 2356 or email me sometimes. Wouldlove to catch up.

Kim, Vincie..I am so sorry. Your dad was a good man, and a big and happy part of my childhood. I remember being in the car driving somewheregoing for hot dogs, or breakfast or somethingand all of us yelling homer! (even tho he was always Mr Gonzales at other times) after something funny he said or did. Please know you, and your family, are in my thoughts.., and Im sorry i cannot be there to give you both a hug. XXO Sharon A.
