J lived next door to Lou & his family on Granite St in Philadelphia. I played with his oldest son all the time & i remember his wife Janice. Her & my mom were good friends. I just remember my mom getting dressed to go to the funeral & how sad she was. I would love to hear from any of the Vasgar family, to just catch up & say hi.
