Shirley, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your mother, My thoughts and prayers go with you and your family at this time.
so many great memories of Dorothy and the entire Jobe family, especially from the sandwich shop. What a sweet, gentile lady that took the time to relate the kids of WC when they were probably driving her crazy. Shirley, so sorry for your loss. The memories of your mom, dad, Eddie and you are so vivid and bitter sweet but made growing up in WC all the better.
