Spent many summers with Merrie and Mr. & Mrs. Clapper in Daytona. Driving to brothers and sisters down south. Remember coming home from skating or movies and the clappers would be sleeping waiting up for us in those recliners. We also would get into painting the upstairs, making donuts normal kid stuff and something would go wrong and Mrs. Clapper with her cute little blond curly hair would give us a little teaching and then we would all be back to normal. She was a great mom and sweet person. Prayers for your family.
