Fond memories of growing up together. Singing in church, riding bikes in the woods between our homes, and even double dating. We were both were saved at EUB church in Ogilville with the leading of my father Rev. L.W. Mayhugh. I spend my winters in Arizona so I am so sorry I could not be there. My prayers and thoughts to Eleanor and the family. Love and prayers, PJ Mayhugh
