    "Bugs On The Slide" With Jan and Babs


    Jan and Babs were my babysitters when I was young. They created fun games to play with me like "Bugs On The Slide" and "Snipe Hunt". When adults would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would delightfully say, "A Teenager!" because I saw how cool Jan and Babs were! When I slept over at the Abbott's, they fixed me delicacies such as Chef Boy-R-Dee pizza in a box. They accompanied our family to our silver trailer Nirvana in the mountains of Oconee County where we fished, swam, and were taught how to clog by the lifeguards at the State Park. I think sharing these memories is a fitting tribute to Jan and how she related to children. Prayers and comforting thoughts to Raymond and family. Myra Ellenburg Davis
