Gary, and family,

I am at a loss for words, a condition which rarely happens for me. When your fellow neighbors encountered hardship or tragedy, Andie and your family never failed to be there to help; your 'combined presence' made the West End, the West End, and for this, I will always be grateful. The residents of "Charles Street; Madison Street; Strode Avenue; Hope Avenue; and the "W - Numbered Avenues", combined into a family of about 270 people, who lent support to each other in times when the going got rough.

Rest assured, that Father Metro, Father Birosh, the "West End's Official Mayors", and their delegates: "John "Buxsie" Boros/Bill Hanna, Sr,/Chick Elmer/George Bodnar/Henry "Koosh" Kashan/Mike Illes/Mike Chermak [I don't know about Mike Chermak, because he kept chasing everyone with that damn insurance payment book]/Tom and Elva Davidson/Joe and Mae Monetto/Gladys Sasso/Zeke Discullio/Earl Baker/Louis Raytik/Chappie Sharp [Davie Hart is helping Chappie with brake jobs again]. I'll stop here, and my apologies for leaving the 'mayors of Polish descent' off of this list, I began writing it, but I received a "pop-up warning" which told me that the interenet would run out of ink if I continued, them's the breaks...

Gary, I sincerely hope and pray, that this message brings a smile to your face during this time of loss; it is my hope, that the observations listed above - brings solace, comfort, and the realization that we were all part of a once great place, during once great times, and that we, collectively, made our knowing and love for each other, the prescious commodity that it was, is, and always shall be. I have no idea if the file attached, however, I uploaded a copy of the Coatesville Record article from 1992, describing the "visitors from another world", who came to the West End. Even 'little green men', from another world realized just how special the neighborhood which Andie helped to create was. They were a day late for chicken pot pie from the "Chef"....

Rest assured that the many "mayors" listed, were there to greet Andie, and "pinch" her, in search of the latest info, on what was the best 1.27 sq-mi in the universe...
