Memories

I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up in the house next door on Holly Street and he was like a grandpa to us. I remember going over there and sitting at the table on their patio. He would give us a pop and cookie and just sit there and chat with us. Or looking at the camper door with the map of U.S. and all of the places they had gone. He always had time to tell me what state it was and what it was like. He was a great man!!
