I will never forget the first day I met Jonnie Jo , my dad had just bought the land right next to her mom and dad which I eventually address them as uncle Ralph and Aunt Donnie for our family's would become very close though our childhoods so when I think of her I remember the precious little dark complexion girl with the long brown hair in the pink and white dress holding a tiny little dog and would have a crush on though my whole childhood and would stay close friends forever, RIP Doodie, love you always
