rs and have her autographed picture hanging in my library. I came close to attending her wedding to Bogart having been invited to spend that summer on Bromfield's farm. My dream for all this time has been to meet her; I think she spends time in the Hamptons, I live in Bellport on LI. I'm 80, she's 85 and I hope she is in good health.
