Dear Barbie, I moved from Hubbards Lane to Indiana in 1962.I have memories of your back yard play area that your father set up. I'll bet he didn't know that he built it for the whole neighborhood! When my beagle, Nibby, was attacked by Tassy, the Scott's dog from National Road, your dad tried to help her bleeding ear, but he could not catch her. I left Wheeling at the age of 12, but have found memories of your family and your amazing back yard where I lost my favorite garnet ring on the merry-go-round. Hope you are well. E-mail me if you get a chance. Sincerely, Punky

Dear Mary, I was so sorry to hear of the death of your father. He was such a super individual. I think back to all the fun we had at your home while growing up. I will always remember him fondly. I lost my father recently so I understand how you are feeling. We are so lucky to have had such wonderful dads. Please know that my thoughts are with you and your family. With love, Mary Ross.

I send my deepest sympathy to the Hopkins Family for the passing of Stewart. It has been many years since I have seen Stewart. I have fond memories of working for Hopkins Motor Company in the Body Shop and seeing Stewart almost every working day, back in the middle 1940s through the 1960s. Sincerely ___Fred Gersting

Mrs. Hopkins, Mary and family, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband and father. As with my father, you know they are not living the life they want. It is still such a heartbreak when they are gone. Take comfort in knowing they are at peace and hold close the memories of the times shared. I still remember your father trying to be so complimentary of our homemade "Good Ship Lollipop" dresses for the BridgeStreet Spring Festival. I'll always remember his laughing eyes behind the compliment! He was such a Nice Man. Holding you in our thoughts and prayers.
