Hello, "Mrs. French", has always been a big part of my Cross Keys memories. I remember when the little house was moved across the Old Sixth Ave. road and placed in the yard. I remember when Mrs. French made cookies she would always give one to the kids that were around. I remember Larry and I making skateboards out of old roller-skates and going down your driveway a million times, I don't think Mrs. French approved. I can hear her voice calling Roy for supper. One last thing, Mrs. French always reminded me anytime that I'd see her that she's the one that taught me math, I don't really remember but I would always thank her and she would give me that look of approval. Mrs. French was a part of my "good old days" and I'll never forget her.
My Sympathy,
Jim Beck
