You always had an incredible memory of places times and dates. I remember how you loved to go to Cooper's at the Publix shopping center in Eau Gallie and race those little cars. You also brought back memories of Elvis the Parrott at Gables Dept Store in Altoona PA at one of our family gatherings. Love your sister El
