I have many fond memories of our times together in Brooklyn, NY. Linda was my third cousin. Linda and I were born in Brooklyn, NY. We shared our childhood days playing outside (jump rope, tossing a ball to each other, hop scotch etc.) I remember when her parents purchased an RCA television set in the early fifties. Family and friends gathered to watch television shows at her apartment. It was always fun to celebrate childhood birthday parties at her apartment. Linda showed kindness, her beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor. Eventually, our parents purchased summer bungalows in Fair Oaks, NY. During the summer vacations, we had many distant cousins to share our times together.
