Personal Notes:
Mary Smith was our neighbor when we first moved to Nashville in 1973. She lived a few houses down the street from us on Highland Crest Drive. She became a very good friend and though she moved to California over 20 years ago, we still send Christmas cards and keep in touch. She had two boys, Danny and Matt, who were friends with Eric and Ken. We would carpool together. Later, she and her husband had a daughter, Jenny. Mary was very kind and gracious to my Mom over the years. She was also a great cook and shared many recipes with me.
