    Nanciann, Your lovely daughter was about the same age as my daughter, Karen who frequented Main 627. I am sure they knew each other. AS you know my Vic passed at about the same age as Lorrainne. It is hard for a parent to lose a child. Our prayers are with you. I have lots of memories of you and your family. May you find peace and comfort soon. Dave Huff
