Dear Shirley, Niomi & Orlee, I won't be able to attend the services for your momma so I am writing to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. My name is Cindy Simone & I lived on 29th Street a couple houses away from where you all grew up. I was also a baby sitter when your parents went out together. I remember sitting on your porch watching you kids play & visiting with your mom & dad for hours on end. I remember when that house burned down & everything was lost. It was soo devastating for your family. Your mom had such a loving smile & your dad had a great laugh. Remember the old car in that backyard? Your dad & I painted it with paint brushes. Your dad also was letting me buy it for $300. I was paying him 20 cents a week for it...:) What wonderful loving people they were. They loved you kids soo much... Now...they are together again in Heaven. I love you! Cindy
