I will always remember the friendship that Bill & You extended to me during my employment (CETA) with the Elmira City School District and thereafter.
And, I was glad to have Bill attend the 2001 "Manning/Hughes Family Reunion". He knew many present at the reunion and he had a great time.

Mr. Cieri was my 7th and 8th grade math teacher at Beecher school back in 1957-1958. He was a favorite of all the students including me. I remember an incident where I was talking to another student in the hallway. Mr. Cieri snuck up behind me, grabbed me around the ankles and pick me straight up above his head. I know he will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
