    John, Jim, Jason and family: I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your wonderful mother. I was your neighbor when I lived on Poppleton many years ago. I loved your mother so much. She was such a great lady and friend to me. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I now live in Florida.

    The Chandler Family: I forgot to mention that I still make your dear mom’s delicious recipe and I have it labeled as Joyce’s pineapple dessert. Just had to let you kids know that I always think of your mom when I make it and everyone absolutely loves it. She was one terrific cook!

      Charlene thank you for sharing with us. My mom would talk about the old neighbor hood and the good times and the nice people.She would always mention you in the conversation. I hope all is well for you and your family.
