Our lives have gone by so quickly but childhood memories are so sweet. We were so lucky to have our little neighborhood ...school right across the street, home for lunch and Big Brother , sledding at Waverly Oaks, skating at the Duck Pond and hours of sledding on our own Porter Road hill. Happy times to look back on during this sad time. So sorry for your loss. Love and prayers to you all.
