Dear Mason, thanks for the memories—-visits to your family in Cove Run which featured homespun plays written and produced by us talented cousins,potatoe fudge (sugar was scarce during WW11), your mom’s homemade root beer, stringing popcorn as decorations for Christmas Trees and ,of course, listening to our grandfather enforcing quiet time as we dutifully sat and listened to his daily radio news reports. In later years the family reunions which included all the cousins and their families young and old were celebrated at Cove Run and Wickwire Road. They were priceless giving the younger generation a great sense of family and fellowship—-so many golden moments! You made the world a better place for all of us!!! Love, Elva and Shirley
