Lived across the street from Chuck and Marie back in late 60/70’s and our children crew up and played together! Had many picnics with neighbors Mike and Ginny Myers, Chuck and Marie, Arline and Judson Bright plus all our kids...lots of memories of Jeff and Jerry, Terri, Roxanne, Karen, and Lynn plus the Meyers’s girls! So sorry to read about your Dad, and didn’t know Jerry and Paul were deceased! Prayers and hugs to your family, Tina’ and Eric’s families! Love to you all!
