    I lived next door ,in the Bronx apt house, to Mildred (aka) “Agg” The reason she was known as Agg was because as kids we couldn’t pronounce Mildred. The memory I would like to share was about when Dave first started dating Milly. We didn’t want him taking Agg away so we were not the friendliest of kids to him. Turns out Dave was way ahead of us, he decided to learn magic tricks to soften us up. We loved it when he came over with a new trick. She was a great lady and will be truly missed by the many that loved her
