Virginia`s family was our neighbors when I was a youngster on my Dad`s farm. Her Dad, Arnold Parker, operated a dairy farm on the Upper Ravine Road, which he later sold to my father. A large family and everyone had a chore. Sadly, those days are long gone where we had love of God & family, and accepted responsibility with discipline.
