When I was little Mary would curl my hair. I will always remember how she whistled and I could feel her breath on my neck. We walked and played around the river with our dog that was always with us. I ran down to get the Doctor when she went into labor with Mike. Then I had to go to school. They would not let me stay home. I love you Mary. Avis
