    Hi Del,
    You probably don’t remember me but I used to live behind you when you lived in Glenview. Bruce and I were friends. We graduated Maine East in 1970.
    I remember your parents had an Edsel at one time.
    I was playing bass in bands when you were. I remember Bruce played keyboards and you played a Gibson “Ripper” bass.
    I saw a PBS special on Catalina tonight and you were interviewed. Glad to see you stayed with music. I was in the music distribution business for 25 years. I’ve been living in Los Angeles for the past 34 years.
    It would be great to hear from you. I hope Bruce is doing well.
