  1. I was 14 1/2 when David was born. His mom had made arrangements with me that when she went into labor she would call me and I would come over and babysit the kids while she and Dave went to the hospital. In the middle of the night our phone rang and I jumped out of bed and ran down the stairs in my pajamas ready to run across the street. My mom called out to me to come back and get dressed. I was so worried that Viv would have the baby before I got there (I lived right across the street! 🥴🥴) that showed how much I knew about childbirth!! I have had great memories right from the start of David and his siblings!! I know David is in heaven with his mom and dad!! May God’s peace be with all of you “kids” Jerry, Linda and Mary! Love to you all!
