Joe and Sylvia Some of my best childhood memories come from spending time at your moms. I would walk across the field to "visit" and see what was for dessert. She always made it in special little dishes..that was big stuff when you are young. I remember how your Dad and my parents would go for chicken in Ft. Loramie and then play cards and then I would play with the doll with the green hair. Your mother was a very special lady to me growing up. She took me to KG every morning on her way to work and assured me we would not be late. I know she will be missed by many.
