Randy and Diana,
I like Nancy had fond memories of visiting your house and the hill and coal pits behind you house on Sherman St. Randy and I got into big trouble for the hike be took from Lawton Park following the creek all the way out to the TV station past Franke Park. Randy got grounded for a week. We were just kids, but free to run the city. Saddened to hear of your lost.

Randy and Diana,I was at the Albion library hunting online an obit for someone else when I saw your mom's name. As the picture was coming up I knew it was her, that smile !!!!!!!! The last time my brother was out to visit we got talking about how much fun we had at your house off of Sherman. The hill behind the house. I remember one evening both mom's were going to buy canning peaches and we girls went too. As my mom was getting into the wagon ? your mom said Mary don't put your feet down too hard, the floor board is rusted out. We all laughed. And they played bingo an few times.together. I thought your mom was so nice and fun, a hoot. And pretty . I'm truly sorry for your lost, but if she had cancer, she's free of it now. Sincerely Nancy and Richard Schwartz, former neighbors, corner house just down the alley and Sherman st.
