Recently as I drove on Woodman, I wondered which house and the name of the family we visited many years ago. Sadly, Thursday's paper provided the answer. I was born in Germantown, KY in 1934 and we came to Dayton about 1941. Mother, Bea Browning is now 102 and lives with me; dad, Clayton Browning died in 1972. I have nice memories of Charlie & Lottie and of visiting Garnet & Duane years ago. My sympathy to the Prosser family.
