We loved our mailman ! Jerry used to let us walk along with him. He had a lot of patience! Several years ago I had the pleasure of seeing him , I asked him if he was a mail carrier and of course he said yes . He asked me to just tell him my maiden name and he knew my address and every member of our family ! He was loved by all the neighborhood kids and will always be remembered.
