I knew Wanda and Johnny years ago. He helped my husband, Jack, to get a job at Sears to work on air conditioners. We became friends of the family & frequently visited one another. Our children, Debbie and Mike played with Jadey & Jody. We lost contact in recent years & I wish we could have seen them earlier. I wish to send my prayers & condolences to John & his family. I am a couple months older than Wanda & don't drive much anymore. Jack passed shortly before 9/11 & Debbie & Mike are single parents living in Knoxville & Clinton. I have sweet memories of times shared with the McCrosky's.
