Mr. and Mrs. Bell were both such wonderful loving neighbors. Mrs. Bell always used to tell my grandma Meme (Merlene Avery) to remind her when us Rooney kids had fundraisers and to come see her and Mr. Bell. Sometimes they would buy enough things on our fundraising packages to get us to the next level of prizes. I loved walking by her house when I was little and see her working in her flower bed. She always had beautiful flowers growing. As I grew up moved away for college and came back I continued walking by her house ln the way to Memes and would wave to her and catch her up on meme and tell her hello for meme and vice versa. She was so sweet! Mrs. Bell and Meme were the longest loving ladies of the old neighborhood! I miss them both!
