I remember all the wonderful nights when John, Bill, Debby and Jim would come down to our house to play hide and seek with Kathy.
Kathy never had anyone to play with until the Sheeley children came into our lives. They are wonderful memories for me. Mary and Mark came down later when they and Mike got older. Oh how I loved the walks and the hunting berries with them. Sometimes I wish they could all have stayed young. God Bless you all.

Much love, liz Karavitis
