I remember the Pappas family that owned the Back Cat Cafe in the 70's. Their daughter Lisa was my friend in school. I am saddened by the explosion that happened that Sunday night. I was suppose to go with her, but it was a school night and I was unable to go. Next day Lisa was not in school. I will always remember her beautiful smile and her laughter.
