    It was such a pleasure to live as neighbors with the Hunter family. While I was the babysitter for Wayne and Glenn, I am sorry that I did not know the other sons well. I have such happy memories of the family and treasure the friendship still!!

    Wayne, I am so sorry about your father. We just buried my mother this past Sunday. She would have been 100 July 1.
    I have been with her the past 5 years . I hope he went peacefully. Love JoAnn Parchman
