  5. Adele……so, so sorry to hear. My Mom called me today and told me. If I had known earlier, I would have been at the wake and funeral.
    Packy was such a great neighbor! I’m so glad I got a chance to play some softball for him, and my Mom and Dad cared for him greatly. He was so helpful to my Mom when my Dad passed away.
    I have to tell you…..I’m so happy that I stopped by your house a couple of times over the years., it was so great to sit and reminisce with both you and Packy……..please take care! Darren Yovan
