Memories of James
Jimmy lived across the street from us. He was my brother, Steve's best friend. He was always nice to me and helped me out. I have never forgotten him.

I am Tom Profita, James younger brother. I was in the 1st grade down the street during the fire. Jimmy 'as he was called in the family' loved cowboys & baseball. As mentioned, I remember Steve Michielutti his good friend from across the street.
