|I have always remembered the kindness of Mrs. Pierson when
I had sleep overs at the Pierson home when I was young. (I'm
now 64.) Judy and I went through school together at West
View Elementary and Washington College Academy,
graduating in 1970. Their home was so comforting. I especially
remember how her mother would come in to wake us and sit
on the side of the bed turning on the bedside lamp and talk to
us so gently. There were other kindnesses too and I always
enjoyed spending time there, but the gentle awakening is a
treasured memory. However, the ticking grandfather clock, that
rang throughout the night was one that took some getting used
to! Thanks for the memories! |
