The three of us were fast friends in high school and had so many, many good times together. The two of you were nearly always together. I’m so sorry to see Rudy’s passed away. Please know you’re in my thoughts and prayers. Maybe we can get together to catch up on the years we’ve missed after we “grew up”. Take care of yourself. Love always, Rita Lorentz Morrison
