Charles Spearman (1969)

Today I read that Elmer had passed away some years ago. I feel very sad that we did not keep up with each other. We pretty much grew up together. Elmer,  Al Etheridge , Don Martin and I would be seen everywhere within out neighborhood. Our parents did not allow us to get too far away. Elmer was the smart one among us. If I remember right, he also worked at his Dad's store after school some days. His mother and mine volunteered at the schools we went to. That big house he grew up in was something else. His mom kept it so tidy and neat. It was across from a big parking lot. Like Elmer, It's gone too. He will be remembered, he was a good friend. He will be missed.
