    So sorry. I remember when I was little and we lived on West Franklin St., Leroy would always come over. He would always chase me and say, I’m going to kiss you. One day, I ran into the bathroom and put water in my eyes and said, Boo hoo hoo.. I heard him tell Mama [Ella Mae] Oh, I made her cry. That’s when I came out of the bathroom with water streaming down my face. He hugged me and told me he wouldn’t do it again. When he turned his back, I looked at Mama and grinned. She knew exactly what I had done. He always did this to aggravate me, He didn’t mean anything, he was only preten ding,, but boy did I feel special. This was one time that I out smarted him. When he went home Mama and I just had a good laugh. He always tried to play jokes on you. I never will forget this.
