Mom & The Neighborhood Kids

get well cardWhen we moved to a new neighborhood in 1960, Mom got acquainted with all the neighbors, especially the children.  I was in high school, about to join my older siblings in leaving town, so Mom expanded her attentions to the young children still there.  When she was ill  once, the kids signed a card which she kept forever.

If Mom were still alive, she would probably still be in touch with them.  She had a big heart.
