Prayers go out to a great man . Who I knew when I was going to Cheektowaga Central High School.

Drama Club in High School was my safe place to land when my home life was a chaotic mess. You taught me to put my heart and soul into performances and I in turn learned to love the arts. You were unafraid to play to the beat of a different drummer and set a great example to be unafraid of living life as your true self. You’ve heard your final Gong and had to go! Thanks.

Dear Harriette,
I worked with your Mother at Farmall and we were close friends.  I also played cards with Jean Ellen.  Donnie was a year ahead of me at Rocky. 
My Love, Thoughts and Deepest Sympathy are with you and your family!
