Hello, Mr. LeRay! I was Cookie's Goddaughter & Pearl's greatgranddaughter, (Well, STEP- great, but I never knew it!) by way of my Grandpa, Ed Haverly. I was SO happy to find your website & see some photos of my family! I have their photos displayed in my home and I always will. They helped raise my brother, Steve, and I in Lawrence County, IN, when they lived on Lehigh Street in Mitchell, IN. I spent a month at their home on Menard Street in 1981, just 2 years before Pearl died. Cookie passed away while I was pregnant with my daughter, in 1985. I miss them all the time and think of them so fondly. Sometimes I laugh to myself when I think of how Cookie spoiled us as kids. They were a very prominent, important part of my everyday life for many years. Thank you so much for taking time to read my memories of 2 very special ladies. I would love to hear or see more about them, and will be happy to share copies of any of my snapshots with you!
Sincerely & greatfully,
