In the past 7 years I repeatedly told the story of "my 3 best friends" who are no longer with us. One died at 48, another 66 and the last age 70. I attribute their deaths to smoking. Two grew up next door to me and one in Parkchester. One (48) was a marine and we use to do all sorts of crazy things not worth repeating here when we were young. Drinking too much, jumping off the Pugsley creek bridge and etc. Let's say he was a bit on the wild side and we got along great since kids. His brother (70) was thought to be my brother growing up on Gleason as we were always together and went to St Helena together for 15 years. When I broke my nose fooling around at school he walked me home and to Dr Goldberg's office. Last, (70) was also in my school, St Helena, for 15 years plus we spent 4 years at Fordham together. He was in my wedding party and I in his. We even worked at the IRS together and so many good time together. The draft board didn't want me due to a few health shortcomings but I'm still here at age 77. These 3 soldiers, RIP, are not. I miss them all.
