Personal Notes:
Aunt Frances and Uncle Richard lived next door to us on Barkley. They had a daughter, Paula, who was about my age. Aunt Frances was friends with Judy (Julie) Roper and that is how I got to be friends with Patti. The Davis's had twin girls younger that Paula before the moved to Odessa. I can still remember Aunt Frances' laugh!
