Hey FMT4life are you my sister? Anywasys want to say Sorry to hear about Mr. Buckley, He was a very nice man. Im not just saying that. When I was 4 yrs old he gave me my 1st bike it was used but I still remember that. also when I was 6 yrs old I was hit by a car and taken to the "OLD" St Joe's hospital well while I was in there I was crying one time and he came in and held my hand and made it OK. I was 6 and scared and he made a scared kid feel safe Thanks for that and May you rest in peace.

To ImGoneNow, I never said I hung out with them in which case I did for sometime. But that's not the point for me writing this. What do you mean that we should be in jail? We weren't bad kids and our family was smart and got out of Fairmount before the Sh*t hit the fan, because if we stayed we probably would have ended up like you...A loser and a coward when you wont even identify yourself to be talking the crap your talking... So just that you know we are doing very well for ourselves. So live life laughing, because life is to short for me to be concerned about you.
