My mother, Janet Simons (then Botsford) purchased the house in front of Uncle Vernon and Aunt Mildred's house in 1974. My brother, Lloyd, and I were very lucky to have grown up with such wonderful neighbors. We would get cards from them during the winter when they were in Florida. I even learned to ride my bike by riding down their long driveway. And they always let us slide down their big hill in the winter time. The memories are endless. I will always miss her waving to us as she pulled in the driveway, and the summer will never be the same without him mowing the lawn. They will both be dearly missed. But, they are together again in heaven, looking down on us, remembering the wonderful times we all had. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
