Deb our life paths have crossed since we were at Hopkins Street, when I moved to the other side of town who came walking down the Alley way but you as your parents had a small shop on South Main Street.. And your first words were this is where you moved too and we hugged, I will never forget it.. As time went on we ended up at Southside High School then as time would have it after graduation we were on our life travels not seeing each other till that Elmira Downtown Christmas Parade we again caught up on our lives you married Skip the same year Steve and I were married and only one day apart , you were now a hairdresser and had your own shop . After our conversation I was at your shop from then on every Wednesday.. Your death was so sudden I still remember our last conversation, I miss you but know in my heart our path will meet again  sincerly Deb Dobson West
