    Priscilla was Maid of Honor at our wedding. She has been a treasured sister ever since. We were so close when our children were growing up. Lynn Marie was like a sister to my children . When my girls visited Lynn Marie, Priscilla spoiled them by taking them shopping with her and buying them lunch in one of Moundsville's restaurants. Priscilla and I used to go shopping on George Washington's birthday. We got lots of bargains for 22 cents. We would go home so pleased with our 22 cent pillows, and other things for the house. We usually started out with about 6 or 8 dollars. Sonny always called her Honey when he spoke to her on the phone. That's how he spoke to all his sisters. We have lots of fond memories.
