Are you talking about the Mercel brothers? One had two kids with Theresa Barbera (Robbie) He is raising the 2 kids since Theresa died and Eddie I heard was dead. I went to school with Eddie, he wasn't a bad looking guy. It's a shame he was a head case.

I remember the Head shop Boz827. I remember the water bed they had in there and my sister Cissy buying her papers and what not in there. Fairmount park was the best, hanging out playing Blackie Blackie and the rope swing up the hill. Is the wall still there, are the names still on it? I spent many nights in that park as a kid. Theresa Specht-Kelly and I were up there for dinner and sat at the front of the park and it just didn't look the same. Even the Parkway room was a different crowd. I miss darts at O'laps and hanging on Bambrey and Parrish. Fairmount was cool, I had the best neighbors, Boslers, Mooney's, McGuigans and Greens on Swain Street, playing hide the belt and water baloon tosses. I miss that alot!!!!

The Wills Family was Joanne, Eileen, Sharon, Lynne, Jackie, Frannie and Joey. My sisters and I were close with the Wills girls growing up. We all hung down the park together, I am one of the younger Trout's, so PLEASE do not confuse me with Mare, or Franny or one of my older sisters, I was the baby girl. We have Cissy, Mare, Butchie, Franny, Frankie, Candy, Dee, Jay, Me, Joey and Mike. I am sure there are many old Fairmounters who remember hanging with one of the Trouts. My mom and dad welcomed all to our home and still do in Florida. So if your ever in Orlando look Frank and Jeanette up, they would love to hear from the old neighborhood.
