"Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad."
- Scout in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird

Happy Valentines Day
Valentine Card. To My Mother. From Kent, age 11, 1956
Inside of the card.
My mom called me yesterday and was asking about some old photos. I looked through the envelope of photos that I had and I came across this Valentine. It has a little note on the back side where my Grandma Faye has written "from Kent, age 11, 1956". There is pencil writing inside the red, crayon heart on the front that says, "Mother". And the faded line at the bottom says, "your son Kent"
