Gayle, so sorry to hear of your loss. Very fond memories of your family as one of your playmates. Dont think you parents were too happy when we made a window for a house in one of their livestock feeders!

I have many fond memories of Maxine playing with Gayle as we grew up as neighbors. She will be missed.
