What a wonderful lady! I know she must have thought, "Won't that kid ever stay in her own yard?" Nope, the fun was in yours!
Praying for all of you. I'm so grateful that she was part of my childhood and that you all were. I still remember your grandmother coming over with HUGE bowls of popcorn to share. Oh, to go back to when our parents had all the problems and we just had time to play.
God bless you all,
Sandy (Pallas) Widdis
