Cindy and Penny, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. I used to stop and see her when she lived on Mechanic Street after visiting my Mom in the nursing home. . I think about you guys often. I think we remember our childhood days and friendships much more as we get older. I live in Crossville, TN now.
