I remember Chunk, Porkey and Donna from my childhood. I grew up with Marys younger siblings. Although she was much older she was always such a nice to us litttle kids. My grandparent and great-grand parents lived as next door neighbors for many years. Miss Pauline was a great mother and passed that love on to her children. With out fail when I drive up Iron Street I think of the Sheffey family. My prayers are with you all today. I told my mother the Mary Paulette passed away. She said please let me know when I can go to her funeral.
