I've known the Hislope Family for most of my life.
Long ago we were bowling and we needed another man and Cotton came and bowled with us.
After bowling we might play shuffleboard and we were always kidded that we were twins, since we were born on the same day and month and year!
He was a good friend to me along the way!
