I am reliving my past having been in the Regina Group circa 1949-1953, attending Kindergarten through 4th grades and having received First Communion there and having spent many an Easter around the duck pond on the grass beneath the shade trees while having parental visitation. I plan on visiting there after more than a half century away from there.

Thank you Jose for those comments. You summed up my life there eloquently. I am happy to say that after all these years I have been in contact with some of you. Stories of the St.Agnes and the history that it took to guide, mold and shape our existence come to full circles for what we are. Hopefully everyone out there that lived there at the "House Kids" St.Agnes live, love and laugh because that's how it should be. All you guys that played football with me in 69 and 70 hope you all show up! Thanks for being my team mates and I am giving a shout out to you guys that played the offense and defense! Special thanks to Coach Tom O'Brien for having the courage to allow me to play.

Since my first post on October 4, 2014, I have met several St. A alumni from the class of 1970: Angel Mojica & Frank Lyles. I have also recently spoken to Bert (Bertram) Sanchez. It was great to speak with him and hear that he has made a good life for himself in California. I will say this of Bert, he overcame much in his life & if there is any amongst us who should be bitter, jaded and have given up, it was him. God knows many of us have traveled through the " valley of death" but for the "Grace of God" there go I. I sincerely hope he can come to the 2015 re-union, it would be a sight for sore eyes to see him in the flesh.

Had to come back and give one more big Thanks to to Coach Tom O'Brien, learned life lessons as I got older. Want to tell you how much I missed the house and all the friends I made and did make a lot when you let me play football with the kids. Played linebacker with the defense. I believe the first year we posted a 4 & 5 record the second squad we were on.


Then came the following year we were all hungry to make it better this time around. We were beating teams like school for the deaf, nyack ,riverdale, st.dominics,tappan then till we played clarkstown in orangeburg thats when we got smacked down. We were all on the bus realizing our world came to a close. You came on the bus and said how proud you were of us but none of the guys said much on way back. We played them 1 more time and thats when I got hurt Angel Mojica inadvertly pushed a player on top of my ankle as I was tackling the runningback on a sweep play. Had to go to ambulance and watch from the game from it. John Rivera was our quarterback I believe. Gutsy is what I had a name for him. We won that game finally and I landed in infirmary for awhile. When I got out I was on crutches for awhile severe sprain caused me to miss last game. I and the team owe so much gratitude for you letting me play this game was an HONER to have played for you and the team at the kids house. We were 8-1 record!

I am going to mention one more thing and hopefully someone can recall this. We use to hike up to a hill behind the black top where we used to do caliisthenics there was a hill that as you got higher we treked up in the morning you could look down and be above the clouds or misty fog.


Two things about this stood out 1. We played color flag where whoever got caught had to surrender ther flag up. Well got a little story to tell I was so good at covering myself up Rudy never saw me beneath him. I was that well covered up like Frodo from Lord of The Rings LOL! I forget who won but that stood out as fun times


2. Now we get to the real good part. Do any of you guys recall disturbing a hornets nest? Well I was pretty much aways on the side when I hear a loud shriek and hollering coming full blast of you guys running down as fast as a rabbit trying to escape the claws of an eagle. Me I ain't running cause if I did then I knew I would get stung! I guess Lou Gehrig shined a light on me. I considered myself the luckest sob that day!

#28 Just wanted to tell Louis LaBosco all is forgiven.Sorry I never responded earlier,wish I had. Life is how we make it. Good and bad but we learned from it as we grow out from it.I was moved by your sincere efforts to make amends to all those you came across.and we come to the full circle of life


. I was the little kid that became afriad to say anything because I looked different. My heart was beating hard wondering when this this would end. Yes life can be wonderful thing if we all just got along.. I want to say that I hold no grudges nor ill feelings toward you and hope you and your Family are well.



Want to wish everyone from the house a Merry Chrstmas those before and after.
