Strange but I just heard from a childhood friend that his mom had passed away a few days ago. He included a bio of his mom and all these years later, I just learned that her first name was Sybil. I had no idea. All I had ever known her as was Mrs. Oling.
I saw her every time I went over to the friend’s house during those high school days. She was always such a grand lady…but she was Guy’s mom….not someone with a first name, but Mrs. Oling. At least, back in those days when the earth was still cooling, you would NEVER call someone’s mom by their first name.
Just a different time, so long ago. Fun to go back and visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.
