  2. When I first moved to Hawthorne I went down to play at the school. The first person I meet was a big kid playing on the chin up bars and he said I couldn’t play on them. After realizing I wasn’t leaving, he finally let me play on the bars with him and later took me back to his house where I met his Dad, Mom and little sister. They were very nice to me. He then asked me to join the Cub Scouts his Dad ran. I had lots of fun at his house and was always the last to leave. As the years went by and I would see his Mom, she would always give me a hug and ask how I was doing, and you knew she cared and really meant it. I always felt nothing but Love from this lady and will always take that with me. They always made me feel like family. Two of the finest people I ever met are Randy and Cheryl. Their kindness and goodness I will never forget and I wish them and their families the best Always.
