Sharon Wheeler: Junas Goodin was wonderful man

Recalls Sunday after church visits to his place and good times at the Cross Roads and the stone marbles Junas Goodin made.

Sharon Wheeler writes:
Junas Goodin was a wonderful Man. He was my Aunt Mary Ellen Dillingham's father. We used to go there a lot on Sundays after Church to visit them. I loved going there. He had a big strawberry field out behind his house. Loved to go and pick strawberries. Aunt Rosie was a wonderful cook as well as Aunt Mary Ellen. Loved my cousins Harold and Nathan. I loved looking at the marbles. i have a jar of old stone marbles we used to play marbles at Coburg. It was a thing to do back in those days. I used to know all the folks up and down that Cross Roads lane . It sure has changed a lot: more homes and the old Junas house is gone and Aunt Mary Ellens house is all redone. My dad was Leonard Dillingham. I have a lot of memories from the Cross Roads. --Sharon Wheeler
