Rose, Got to thinkimg about it, and I never really answered your question as to our relationship. Rick being Buddys' son he would be my first cousin. By the way I remember when Buddy and Lil first started dating ...ha ha ha ....guess that makes me old huh? I imagine Lils' Mom Pearl is long gone by now but was curious of her brother Larry Mangone ..we used to sort of hang out together once in a while and last I knew he was trying to break into the entertainment business as a singer. Well better go for now.. anxiously awaiting to hear from you. Take care..give my regards to all, and please contact me.
