I’ll always remember when cousin Andy was about 12 years old at Grandma Smetana’s in Granville when he went to Scarlotta’s store with a dollar and bought 100 pieces of bubble gum then shared them all with the younger cousins at Aunt Marys cottage on Lake St. Catherine. You could tell he was a good guy way back then! Jim Stark
