My name is Lee Rusetzke, my parents and I lived at 12315 East Warren, unit 147, building 301. Our "alley" was directly across from Cupids and Stott and Murphy Ford. We lived in Parkside from 1957 through 1971. Although we were very poor the friendships we made and the memories we have no amount of money could buy. Parksider's this web site was created for you, I hope that you will take the time to drop an e-mail to me and share your Parkside memories.

I was recently on Facebook and found the Facebook page of Randall Pullin. Randall, his brother Dennis and their mother Loraine lived in our alley across from Cupids restaurant. Randy was the recipient of the Champion award and was chosen as the Grand Marshal for the 61st St Claire Shores Memorial Day Parade on May 26, "A Time to Honor". Thank you Randy for your service and congratulations on your award and for being chosen as the Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshall. You have done Parkside proud.
