Debbie and Jeff - I am sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I have a lot of memories from when you lived across the alley from us, is it possible that I remember her being pregnant with Jeff? I loved playing in your upstairs, and your Mother would let us go up there and roam. Remember that? She taught me how to snap green beans. She was always kind to me, I remember staying all night with you after you moved to Terre Town, and she stopped and picked up a sandwich for me (Hamburger Handout!!), because I didn't eat enough at your house. Years after we left Garfield, she was always friendly , as I would occasionally see her somewhere eating out. She was a very kind lady. I'm sorry.
