Dear Sylvia we are so sorry you have to go through this kind of heartache! The world is a much different place now, not so much innocence as there was when we were running around your Moms home in Ashaway, getting into trouble. We think of you and Tarni often, and Laurie and I send our deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved him . Laurie and Linda former ( Handley)
