Mrs. Platts was like a second mom to me. She taught me to sew and she watched over my sister and me as we made the trek between her house and ours. I spent countless hours at her house playing with "the boys" and she always had Kool-Aid on hand when we got tired and thirsty. In her later years, Mrs. Platts was a great friend and companion for my mom, Gloria Dunlap.... doing puzzles or playing Scrabble. She will be missed. Thanks for everything, Mrs. Platts.
