Growing up in Mt. Airy, St. Mark Church, Garyville Magnet, ESJH, Playmakers. You always wanted me to come back & play ball but I told you I had to let it go. Every time I saw you, you was smiling. Screamed my name at the reception & squeezed me...Amy. Forever Mt.Airy/Playmaker. I pray the softball I left you remains there. I love you Lex ❤️
