  • Dianne, I am writing this from Valparaíso, Chile where I spend my winters. When you lived on the east side of Wilmington across the street from George Grey elementary school I was your next door neighbor. This was 60 years ago, My family moved when I was in the second grade. We lived in the only single(non-row) house in the neighborhood. I remember that your Mother cooked you ravioli and you didn´t like it so she brought it over for me to eat. I never even Heard of ravioli before then. I hope you are healthy and happy and live as long as your Mother. Dale Coover
