ADD A MEMORY
Christine Kent

Dear BJ, Kathy, Cindy, and Scottie,
So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. What an impressive man.
So many fond memories of your dad and the kids on Clover Lane -- sitting in the wagon as he pulled us around on his sit-down lawnmower, all the kids piling into his truck to go to Dairy Queen, or squeezing into the back seat of his brand new sports car (was it a Corvair?) We always had fun with Mr. Blomeley.
My sincere condolences to you and your families.

Chris Kent
