I, too, was a neighbor before moving across town. We had so much fun swinging and singing at the top of our lungs on her swing set. Met up again in high school. She was such a sweet person.

I was neighbor of Libby's when I was a youngster. What a good kid. I remember her pet boxer and her brother Skeezic (sp).
