  1. Barbara and I were best buds thru elementary school. We went to Wilson, Polk Street Methodist Sunday School, girl scouts, and everySunday afternoon went to the movies.

    Barbara and I were best friends in grade school at Wilson, in Brownies and Girl Scouts, and at Polk St Methodist Church. Every Sunday afternoon we went to the movies, got a coke, and a movie magazine. If we went to the Paramount, we visited Walgreens and if the State, Cretneys. Either Joe or my mom or uncle always took us and picked us up. I cherished our friendship. I knew her kids as babies…RIP

  2. Carrie and Family,
    I loved your mom. She was always so sweet to everyone and had a great way of making me feel loved.
    So very sorry and I’ll be praying for you.
    Love, Sara
