Growing up, the Lockharts were like a second family to me that opened their home to me for sleepovers and even took me on vacation to Disneyworld.

  14. Ken was a neighbor of ours for a short time but we sure had a good time with him. He enjoyed his yard so much and was willing to give me tips for my yard. Ken volunteered to mow a portion of my yard that was hard for me to get to. He was always friendly and interested in what was happening with us and the other neighbors.
