  • I’m remembering summer visits to Pimlico Avenue, carloads of Lounsbury’s arriving at our house on the way to Canada, weekends on Academy Street when I would come down from Fredonia, and the luxury of having someone who was able to listen to the hard questions before I tried them out on my own parents. Thanks Murn…
