It seems like yesterday that my parents took us to Aunt Irene and Uncle Doc's house to play. What fun we had in the backyard on the swing set with Carole Ann and my brothers and sisters. Going to Uncle Doc's gas station and he would just let us have the run of the station. Such great memories. You will be missed.
