    I will never loose the memories I have of the fun times we played, sometimes at Aunt Jackie’s and most of the time at Ma and Pa Taylor’s house. Us cousins, Ronnie, Gordy, Sherry and myself having so much fun. Sherry and I would have big ideas to try ( most of the time from watching the three stooges) and Gordy and Ronnie would get into trouble by Ma. Once we ask them to roll Sherry and I up in a quilt real tight and then spin us out of it. It didn’t work it popped our heads together and made us cry. So the boys got into trouble for being too rough. Once Aunt Jackie’s pump had quit working and she told him not to get dirty the water was off. Sherry and I decided a dirt clod fight was on and he blasted us good but got into trouble for getting all dusty. You just never forget the fun you have with cousins. Gordy was always so special to me. I .love you Aunt Jackie and Jan
