Jacqueline and girls. My thoughts are with you at this time. I see your Dad was born the day before me on July 8 1938. Small world. Since he was a twin was he a premie. I was 6 weeks early and a premie. I remember you talking about him at Apollo and Ed did know him. I enjoy reading your girls items on Facebook. Hope you are doing well. Take care.
