My childhood is full of memories of our neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Pomeroy. And, though, it's been many years, I never forgot them. My mom, Mrs. Gummerson, was also a resident at Proctor Home and I always made it a point to see Mr. Pomeroy when I was visiting there. He was a wonderful neighbor and always had a huge smile for everyone. Mary Gummerson (Heyl)
