Dear Elaine, It shocked me to see Richards name while I was searching out my Uncle Benny Gattozzi (91). I regret that we never hooked up over the years, seems like being as close as we were it never happened. It is times like this that you wish you did a better job keeping in touch with people. One story I still like to tell and maybe you never heard of it but, Dick and I were sitting on the fenders, yes remember fenders, of my dad's 1951 Plymouth shooting rats at the Hopedale dump. Coming down the RR tracks was this cat running....Dick, watch this, bang and the cat rolled over dead. We ran across the street and guess what, it was Richards cat....that was an OOOOps and a very lucky shot. It wasn't nice but it was funny at the time. I will always have fond memories of you Len Verrelli
