    Anne and I would like to offer our condolences to the family of Lorraine Farkas on her recent passing. She was a wonderful lady. I first met Lorraine back in the fall of of 1955 when she was dating my buddy Nick. I liked her immediately upon meeting because she was the first girl i knew that could handle that swashbuckling Farkas guy..! Lorraine had a particular way of capsulizing a situation and reaching the proper direction in which to push Nick and that was an extreme revelation in that era of his development. He was a very lucky man to have had one of Earth’s Angels in his life.
