  1. I lived next door to the Callahans along with my Dad Herb Kopf former football coach at Boston Yanks, Pro, BC, Brandies, Columbia, Manhattan. We were their best friends. I have Billys 22 rifle that they gave me we he died. Never met Billy. We moved next to them in 1944. We lived near them during the summers in Scituate.
