So very sorry to hear of your mother's passing and certainly remember all her efforts with your family and growing down Raymond street - attending Nativity with Carol's class and Warren Central after that. Nearly all of the neighbors other than your family have moved away now - we moved into 6434 in 1956 - what a long time ago - say hi to your Dad - you are all so very lucky to have had both of them with you all this time.
Your old Neighbor
