We drove across the country together to move to California with Jerry Sadin, and all three of us lived here when he died.
Add the friendship of Lance Harrison and family to that mix and I relive all those times over and over again in my mind.I can still remember Lance laying sprawled out under my chair in my bedroom during one of our famous post-game football parties. She was a dear friend, always full of life and always vibrant, and so beautiful in every way. I am deeply saddened that you are no longer here to share your joy with the world. Love, Barbara Smith Roberts In remembrance of my loving grandfather, Mr. Years later he worked for Morris Oil Company reparing oil burners. Elisa (Bachrow) and Al Hinken Murray was my "Best Man" and a super friend for many years. His sister, Rochelle, was (and still is) one of my closest friends so I spent lots of time at their place in Wavecrest. Mean and tough Alan, But friends, he had hundreds, Wild parties with the gangs...We were part of the Clark's Candy Store group on Mott Ave. Annother one of our group that passed away much too early in life was Bob Seidman, also from the same class (1945). Although Steve appeared somewhat quiet and unassuming, he had a heck of a wit. Wavecrest, Fathers and 17th Street parking lots oh,boy!!! He was really a great guy and I loved him as did many of his closest friends.Life has it turns and Lance spun around in confusion. He was a loving father to their six children, Alice (Craft) Napolitano, Barbara (Craft) Dawo, Dorothy (Craft) De Franco, Burton Craft Jr., Paul Craft and Peter Craft.

Once, my foot got caught in the spokes of the wheel, Alan and I got full of splinters from the boardwalk.I don't dwell on those bad times, just the GRAND times. Warren Mitchell I just recently found out that Joyce has passed on. He also was a loving grandfather to thirteen grandchildren. While working for Republic he lost two fingers off his left hand. We are sure there isn't one day that goes by and someone doesn't think of him. Steve Elkin was one of the funniest kids I'd ever known. Then he took me to Jerry's Kinishes and the fudgy-wudgys man on the beach where he later bought me an icebar...let's not forget about Lenny's "Fascination", when he used to chase me home in the wee hours and "Ellies" luncheonette, where I spent most of my high school days cutting classes and my brother, kicking my butt for it.
