Mr Diamond was a great teacher and a wonderful person. I got to know him personally because he dated my friend Kathy's mom while I was in his class. He would take us (Steve Tray, Kathy, and Stehen Herman) bowling once a week. We had a great time. I'll never forget him.

Steve Tray PS My mother still lives in the Levitt ranch her and my Dad bought from The Levitts in 1949. She's probably the only original house buyer still in Levittown (86 years old, going on 50).
