Floyd: when my family moved to DALE STREET (mom and dad were Peggy and Dennis Gray) in 1957 i so remember coming to your house and Eva and You always made a five year old feel right at home. Your and her patience was so admired as i look back now to those early years. I know that she has suffered in the past several years, and know you have been so patient and loving with her each day. My prayers and thoughts to you in these days ahead as we have the reassurance of seeing her one day again! Your grandaughter Anna is married to my wifes cousin and have kept in touch on you both thru her! a Little boy from the past on Dale Street Keith Gray
