    Saw Mildred’s name in paper. You won’t know who I am, but we lived a few miles from she & Shorty up in Iowa on farms. Russell & Helyne Crawford.I think we square danced too.
    Put up corn, made pizza, ate deer meat etc. We made lots of memories back then.
    After we moved to Omaha and they to Wahoo, we kept in touch at Christmas.
    She was a great lady.Bet you have lots of memories also. Bless you all. Helyne
