Louis Gerundo

So sorry to hear of the death of Lorraine Bergstrom. Lorraine and Carl (Joe) were the young couple who loved next door to my parents, sister, and me when we moved to Two Brook Road in Wethersfield. They drove me daily to Hartford High on their way to work at Aetna in Hartford so I could complete my junior and senior years. I shall always be grateful for their generosity and kindness. They and you were wonderful neighbors to our family. My deepest sympathy to you all at this difficult time.
Lou Gerundo, Jr.
