  1. I have such fond memories of Mrs. Myers. I was good friends with her daughter Martha. I was always at there house. I remember she use to make biscuits and chocolate gravy for breakfast. I would never try it. May she rest in peace, and may she and Martha be reunited again. Thanks for all your kindness to me.

  2. So many memories, where do I begin. We were neighbors on Chester St. where Jerry and I attended Henry Ruff elementary. Remembering watching TV with the family and it was a colored TV and that was a big deal, our family had black and white. Myers family had a method of choosing the next TV show to watch and that was to say the word stick. I was broken hearted when the family moved out to New Baltimore, Mi on Sugarbush Rd. but Lena came back in the summer a few times and brought me out for visits. Geneva did make the best biscuits and jelly breakfast. So to my best friend, Jerry, I love you and will see you in Gaylord. Walt Lane (P.S. give me a call when you can 636 259 0040)
