Hi, this is John (Claude) Freeman, who lived across from "Miss Audrey" for many years. I remember her always being so incredibly welcoming in her home. I remember her new squishy kitchen flooring she got which made the freezer hard to open. I remember Corbett Jr. teasing me relentlessly and even beating me in a running race, while he ran backwards. (I was much littler than him!). I remember being in "love" with Nancy, many years older than me, and being ring bearer in her wedding. I remember Mr. Ourso's missing finger, a subject of endless fascination, and him always being so nice. I remember the older girls doing glamorous, adult things with dresses and boys in cars. Wonderful neighbors. I dug up some old photos. Contact me at email@example.com I may have more!
