As I recall, Jerry would pop in my grocery store Main St. Mkt every so often to chat, learn of any important happenings on the West End, and to see if the girls were charging too much (haha) on the house charge (the Isoms had special status: They were our only "I" in the house charge system, and to see if the monthly bill was currently paid. I knew that if Mary was happy, Jerry was happy, just as it is in my household. Happy times, fond memories. John the grocer.

Dr Isom was my dentist when I was a child and he was the most gentle dentist. I was never scared to go to the dentist. Prayers to the family.
