On a trip back to Ohio, about a week before her passing, I saw my mom's best friend, Jeannie. She looked quite ill but the minute I saw her smile, I knew it was her. I got to visit with her and her daughter Joanne for about an hour and we took a little trip down memory lane. "Jeannie" was my mom's best friend almost her entire life because the girls grew up together in West Manchester, Ohio in the late 1940s. They ended up doing a lot of crazy things together. One story I will share here is that my mom's father (my grandfather, Harvey Schafer) was a drinker. He was constantly up at the bar, when there was a bar in town. One day, they 2 girls decided to take his car up to Eaton, (I think) so they could see some boys. Both were about 14 and neither could drive. Harve's car was parked in front of the bar so they drove it up to Eaton for a couple hours and then returned it to THE EXACT SPOT where they found it. Harve was not aware that the girls, let alone his car, was even missing. They were so sneaky. My mom said they would double date with boys all the time. When Jeannie was a senior in high school, she married Jack Hoff. You were not allowed to be married and in high school back in the day so it was a BIG SECRET until mom and Jeannie graduated from high school. Jack and Jeannie were married for about 6 months before graduation. I also remember having so much fun with Jackie, Joanne, David and Debbie, Jeannie and Jack's four children. It was so much fun going to their house on New Year's Eve when I was a kid. Playing Euchre and eating cabbage rolls; listening to Dean Martin and watching Guy Lombardo on the TV. We all had SO MUCH FUN "back in the day" in West Manchester and in Enon, Ohio. I will ALWAYS remember Jeannie as my mom's most MOST BEST FRIEND. I am happy that they are all together in eternity: my mom, Jack and now Jeannie along with so many others. I can see them all around a card table playing Euchre and reminiscing. They will always live as long as we remember them.

I remember Dolores and Jack from church in West Manchester when we lived there. What a beautiful lady she was. I remember her grandchildren as well. Rest in heaven Dolores. You will be sadly missed.
