I remember coming home from Celina one day and seeing Ivan and Carl Boone sitting out in front of Carl's house "holding court" as I called it. I stopped and hung out with them having the best time ever listening to them share stories. Ivan was the sweetest and kindest of people, he holds a dear spot in my heart! Patti Richardson
