L-R top: my sister Mary Jane, Patty Carissimo, Diane Sekevitch

L-R bottom: Petey Vaccaro, Rick, Frankie Carletta. Fast forward a few years...Pete pulled me out of the icy Mohawk River and saved my life. Sometimes I think I have an unpaid debt to the Mohawk and it’s calling me, demanding to be paid.
