    My sympathy to Charlotte and Emily on the death of your brother Sonny. I was your little neighbor girl–to the east–when you lived in Maddock–over 60 yrs. ago. Jeanne Mathieson. I have a photo of both of you at my 3rd birthday party. I fondly remember your parents “Ma and Pa” as well–and remember eating June berries with cream and sugar at your home in Maddock.
