i remember so well your grandmother clara simmons, as she lived next door to my mother elma armstrong for many years. i recall many times as a child being in mrs simmons little house. we lived in the little house directly across the street from the baptist church, and mrs simmons lived next door east of us. the picture of her in your column brought back many memories as i recall her looking exactly like that.

forgive my typing in all small case, just a habit i've gotten into with "messenger". makes it faster, and i use messenger a lot "talking" to my brothers and sister.

i enjoy your columns in "the view from here" and in "caddo--my home town". i check in every few days to see what is new in them.

i'm impressed with everything that is going on in caddo to preserve heritage and history of the town. i was not able to attend heritage day last year as i was out of state for a family funeral, but certainly hope to be there this year.

thank you for the work you do to keep caddo citizens, past and present, up to date on all the happenings "at home".
