The best "stand-in" mom a neighbor kid could ask for. Mrs. Spittell helped me make a surprise anniversary cake for my mom and dad....making Christmas cookies in her kitchen was a real treat because she used frosting! So many good memories. I am grateful to have grown up living next door
to a lovely person in all ways. My thoughts and prayers with you all - Kim.
