Frances, growing up with Charlie and being around Jim and you during your courting and early marriage days, I remember fondly how you and Jim would let Charlie and me tag along to bowling in Manchester. I also remember fondly when you would receive a letter from Jim when he was in Vietnam and you would bring it up to Hilton and Ruth to read to them. Somehow as a young person hanging around with Charlie and his family meant a lot to me. Although I have lived away from Woodbury for many years, I enjoyed running into you at the Auburntown fish fry or another place in town. All who know you will miss you dearly.
