I first met Tony in the sixth grade. We were assigned seats next to each other, and became fast friends. We always chose each other for class projects, gym partners, etc., and although we each had many friends, we always seemed to hang out together. We would talk for hours on the phone about anything and everything, until my mother would pick up the extension and make us hang up. Of course I wanted only the best for my best friend, Kathy, and so I hooked her and Tony up. Kathy and I and Tony and his best friend Ted (another good friend of mine)were the fearless foursome. We had so much fun in those carefree days, riding bikes, hanging out at the park, or just sitting on the curb in front of Ted's house talking. The following was copied from the Cape Cod News.
