Dear Carver Family,My childhood memories are that Mrs. Carver was a special friend and neighbor. I used walk home from school with Clara and sometimes stop to talk with Ruth in her shiny kitchen. She was always so caring and cheerful and uplifting and had yummy treats for us. I will always cherish those happy memories of growing up on Darling Street. Chris
