When Debbie was young she lived on 13th Street in Belleville. As an 8 or 9 year old, I would ride my bicycle past her fenced-in back yard. Debbie was often inside her yard calling to me, "Please come and play with me! " Usually I was in a hurry ţo bike to Henry Raab school, but every now and then I would stop and we would swing on swingset or toss a ball. That was in the mid 1960s ... a simple yet fun time. Please accept my sympathy .... blessings Larryd
