Posted a picture of Rosemary and I 2nd grade. We were inseparable. We moved to Wappingers and time passed . we would see one another here and there during our teens and then I made an effort 10 yrs ago and we had a great talk over coffee at Price Chopper. I'm sorry we never got back in touch. I guess I can tell now we had a secret kiss. First for both of us. Rest dear friend you have always been in my mind and heart
