I remember playing with Bonnie & Nancy from when I was a little girl, and especially "sleeping" in your parent's bedroom when the adults gathered for parties. I so enjoyed your Mom as an adult; she was delightful. My sympathies to you all.

I will never forget when Mrs. Austin drove Amy and I in Georgies blue corvette ( he was in Guam at the time) to the mailbox in our goofy sunglasses. I love you mom!
