    Takes me back to a simpler, quieter and gentler time. These were years when I was in high school. Enjoying my family, my friends and my life. My mom, dad, sister and two brothers. Not a worry or care in the world. No more mom, dad sister or brothers. And I could not wait to grow up. Ain’t what I thought it would be. If I had only known. But, I don’the think I would change a thing. Life is still good and because of Daily Doo- Wop, I can relive all the good times of the 40’s and 50’s. My time. Thank you. I am 75 years old and thankful for life.
