Attended Myrtle School 3rd grade Mrs Woods class.

Such a friendly smile and engaging personality.

here is a famous tune on a par with "Footprints in the Snow"" by Flatt & Scruggs.

Here is "Knocking on your Door" from most famous album of " Old and in the Way"

featuring Jerry Garcia, Peter Rowan, Vassar Clemens, and David Grisman:
