This I Believe: Friends

Providence, RI – Have you ever wondered what happened to your closest childhood friends? What path did they take in life? How did things work out for them? For many of us these are questions for which we have no answers. Not so for this week's essayists, Ed Iannuccilli and Steve Mallett.

Ed Iannuccilli is a physician and former Chairman of the Board at Rhode Island Hospital. He is a graduate of Providence College and author of the book, "Growing up Italian, Grandfather's Fig Tree and Other Stories." An Air Force veteran, Steve Mallett has been in the kitchen design and sales business for 45 years. A golfer, New York Yankee lover and expert cake decorator, Steve has four children and nine grandchildren. He and his wife live in Suffield, Connecticut.
