Not inclined to leave her only child alone, as soon as school was out in the spring, she lovingly deposited her on a train bound for a thriving coal mining community in southern West Virginia where her parents lived and her father and brothers worked in the mine.Her only sister, Betty, was just three months older than her daughter, Peggy, making her not only Peggy’s aunt, but also her summertime playmate. When the Doodle Bug chugged into the station near the Company Store, black smoke pouring from its smokestacks, Betty was always there to greet Peggy. They were delighted to see each other and eager to start their summer together.World War II was raging, many young men were being sent home in boxes, food and other commodities were rationed, a lot of people didnt have enough to eat. To many, it was the worst of times, but to these two young girls, it was an adventurous time of discovery and growing.A time in which many lovely memories were made that have been cherished throughout their lives.
