  1. Hi Brad. I’m so sorry to read about the loss of your mother in Saturday’s Daily Breeze (12/17). I don’t know if you remember me. We went to school together at Malaga Cove. You were dating Stephanie West. You went on to PV High. Stephanie, Nadine Kunst, Wendy Sharp, Elaine Demetz and I (to name a few) went on to Rolling Hills High. I just wanted to touch base and send my condolences to you and your family. You’re in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Maybe we can hook up sometime to catch up on what we’ve all been up to. My cell is (310) 339-2603. Take care…Lisa Collins (Scott)

  2. In 1980 when I moved from New Orleans to Southern California, I knew virtually no one. I was fortunate enough to meet Sandy almost immediately and she was a great friend the few years I lived here.
