Don and Pearl were my parents neighbors when we lived on our farm across the street. Lois Cowley, Don’s mom, would have me come over and bake cookies with her in the underground home. She had me call her Grandma, she baked a doll cake for my birthday. I thought so much of her. My parents were their friends, Jerry and Betty Jamison. Don was a nice man, it breaks my heart that he’s passed away. I am so sorry, Pearl.
