    It's been a really long time since I had seen or thought of Billy. Long long ago when we girls were little, he caught a baby rabbit and brought it to us from the field after plowing one summer when he was worked for Daddy. I've never forgotten.
    I remember Paul and JoRita and other children's names, particularly Suzie (near my age) from attending North Plains Christian Church. Again that was long long ago... haven't thought about those days in years...
    I'm glad for the memories.
    My condolences to all.
