Alex and I attended St. Brigid’s and St. Michael’s together and were inseparable friends during those years. We made an attendance at the new Okeefe center in 1960 (?) and were first time riders on the new University subway. We grew apart after I moved from Toronto’s east end (Woodbine/Danforth) and unfortunately did not continue our relationship. My mother died in 1962 and Alex was there in his father’s 1957 Ford station wagon always at my side. Rest in piece my dear old friend, I have thought about you numerous times over the years and only wish we could have seen each other again. Memories of our adventures will be treasured forever.
