Oh, the memories I have of fun times on the Harrison farm in Greentown! How I loved that farm and Aunt Eileen along with Uncle Jack and my cousins Jackie, Gayle, Patti and Kim were part of the reason I loved it so much! Anytime my family would travel from Delaware to Kokomo I would swear it took a year . . . . ugh. . . . . .but as we turned into the driveway and I heard the gravel crunching under the tires, I knew I was in "heaven." And now Aunt Eileen is truly at home with Jesus in heaven and someday we'll see each other again. 💜
