Bob I will see you in Heaven soon ,we had a wonderful time growing up on Elm St The park was a wonderful place we could jump the fence and be playing games or be home just jumping the fence. Remember being at the town to get books and seeing who could leave the yellow spots to go as far as we could till we were caught. Golf games were great , and our Love of Oliver Ames and Buddy at the Park were great. Maybe there be horse shoes , remember we play till I win. All my love God Bless your brother Chris (Albie) thru the stories told to Judy my partner
