    To Dannie, Kay, Connie, Elaine, and Fay, my heartfelt condolences to each of you. We share a number of memories from our early childhood. Though I was never quite sure until recently when I spoke with your mother about how our families became entwined, your mother told me that my parents were their neighbors. I had always thought that James and my Dad, Tony, had been Army buddies. I have so many memories of playing in your yard and your coming to visit us when we lived on Peachtree St. about 1960 give or take a year or two. I think I am correct with the above information but you can let me know if it is wrong – ok? It was not until I started teaching at Liberty Bell that I saw James and found out that Louise worked in the cafeteria. I can’t remember exactly but it may have been Connie who was going to school there about 1975. Connie, it was not long ago that we spoke of your Mother and her health. I am so sorry I did not realize the status of her health. I spoke with my wife several times of going to visit her. She was always so nice and kind to me. I will hold all of these memories fondly forever. May God bless and keep you in his loving care. My prayers are with with you. Ron Satterfield 928-7423 [email protected]
