Susie Bagwell Harker

Dear Penny and Johnny and family - Seeing your mother's obituary in the paper brought back many childhood memories when we lived next door to each other on Vernon drive. She was my first piano teacher. I remember the colored chicks your folks would buy you each year at Easter - mine never would, and I thought your parents were the best! After playing all day outside in the neighborhood and on the boulevard, I remember your mom would always call you in for dinner by singing your names up the scale. May you cherish your memories. Sending you love, sympathy and a hug.

Kelly Boger
