I remember the first time I saw Jaqueline Murphy at Cardinal Newman School, she had the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen. She sent a valentines card to me at school (Cardinal Newwman), and her friend asked if I would go out with Jaqueline. I said no, because I wasn't ready for all that stuff, I was to busy being stupid and playing sports. I probably hurt her feelings, but I never forgot her, sorry Jaqueline.
