    I have many memories of Carolyn and Lorraine when we were kids. They were a little older than me, and so good to me. They even let me help them do dishes! They came up here a few years ago and it was so good to see them again. When I hugged them goodbye I did not want to let them go. Thank God for memories. They called me “Kitty”
