    Mike, Brian & Susan:
    Well… This stinks. We so loved growing up so close to your family across the ravine. We sure shared the ups and the downs throughout the years, didn’t we. Things I remember growing up adjacent to the Harrington’s: The coolest front yard snow fort made out of igloo blocks. Spaghettios eaten on a kid size picnic table on the front porch. Jumbo Tinker Toys. The Dinner Bell. Science projects y’all got to do with bugs, ether and stickpins. Softball. Lots and lots of softball. Detassling. Lots and lots of detassling. Pool days at Kingston. Carpooling in the ‘wagon. Your Mom never missing her soap operas. Our Moms walking the neighborhood together. Your pet bird… Good times! A generation like no other. We could always count on each other’s family. Your Mom will be missed. I know my Mom had thought of your Mom often and wondered where her friend had gone over the last many years. Stop in and say hi anytime you are back in WL. They’re still in the same place… I am so sorry for this loss. Thinking of you all.

    Much love,

    Janet Mayrose DeArk
