I was Nancy Butcher and lived on North 20th street. Steven and I were the two shortest people in every Bryant Grade School class picture. When I married in 1967 Steven sent me the enameled demitasse spoons in the attached picture with German scenes and crests. I have displayed these spoons the whole 52 years to present day. I always meant to contact him to let him know how much I valued his gift. As I age I have been trying to "rehome" my keepsakes that may have little meaning to my children. If anyone in Steven's current family would like to have these you can contact me and I will send them to you to honor his memory.
