Interesting People

Hello Dear Reader,
There were a lot of interesting people that lived within the ward boundaries of the newly-formed Rivergrove 2nd Ward and not all of them were Mormons. The Roberts family were Roman Catholics and they were the first people I ever heard take the Lord's name in vain. They could often be heard yelling, "I'm going to kill you." Their house smelled of second-hand cigarette smoke and coffee and on Fridays,the smell of fish came wafting from their kitchen.

As loud as they were they were always kind to us children. Their children Frankie and Patsy were not our favorite playmates, though, as they were pretty tough for the sissy Carter girls. They were the only people I knew at the time that didn't belong to our church. But their grandmother, Grandma Roberts, always came to visit when she was in town and Grandma (Mary) treated her with great kindness and respect.
