I have a lot of fond memories of Rollie when I was growing up. My brothers and I would go out to Henry and Rollies place and pick strawberries. I don’t remember how much but we got so many cent per quart that we picked. Those were the best strawberries. Mark and I hung out a lot at Rollies. She loved to play cards. We played a lot of pocker at her kitchen table. I am sorry I can’t be there. I want everyone to know that I am thinking of everyone. Joe
