When Dale Bass-Weems, Anita Daniels and Jennifer Bennett three childhood friends came back to visit Red Bank last year, it was on the worst of terms. A friend had died, and they were reconnecting with a lot of their old pals in a funeral home.
It was a watershed moment for the three women who grew up on the West Side.
“We decided we were tired of coming home for a funeral. Why can’t we come back for better reasons?” Daniels, now of Asbury Park, said.
