I am so so sorry. We celebrated our 16th birthday together along with Tony and Michael. What a great time we had. We danced in our basement on 23rd ST. I lost track of her and didn't know where to begin. My heart breaks along with you.
Lila, I will miss you but we will meet again and dance on the streets of gold. Till then , I love you and you will forever be in my heart. Esther Bond
