As a boy, I wasn't much of a joiner. Although I knew many kids, I never aligned myself to one particular group. But as I think back 47 years I remember running with a bunch of guys from the gym where I boxed. We formed a club called The Knights. Many of our adventures on the mean streets of the Bronx evolved from that club. Denny Malvey was our boxing coach.

My Memorial Day thoughts are expressed in the context of his life.

Thoughts from Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia It was Saturday morning, 7 a.m. I had just finished a run and thought I would read a few pages of a good book and enjoy a 'spot of tea.' I must have been dreaming! Suddenly, Sabine and Simone emerged fully dressed and excitingly exclaimed, "Daddy, are you coming with us to the Cool Cats Jump Rope Club?" "What's a jump rope club," I asked? "We're going to take jump rope lessons." After a week of ballet, tennis, soccer, choir practice and first communion classes and now this?
