Joan and Bill were our friends years ago. I remember their food stand on a lake well. We both lived in Ca. and the men worked
for Xerox. I met a daughter once there when she saw an advertisement for my design store. They were good friends and good
people. My deepest sympathy to their children. Mary Ann Ciulla---27 Paramount Lane, Rochester 14610
