Hi Diane, Pam and Carl. I don't know if you remember me and Debbie, from the old days on Bellview. I was so sad to see that your Mom passed away. Our Mom died in 2013, Dad in 1986. My husband and I live just south of Medina, Ohio. We still go up to Chagrin for the dentist! Debbie and her husband live in Charlotte NC. We both have 2 kids, no grandchildren yet! I still remember our fort in your old rabbit pen and riding our bikes down the middle of Bellview to keep cool. Who could forget the "lovely" flowers we brought to our Moms, fresh from the trash wagon at Stroud's funeral home. Hope you all are doing well and our condolences in the loss of your Mom!! Barb
