Guest Book

Dear Family, When I was a child, I looked forward to visiting the Canfield’s Coin shop with my Dad. While my Dad shopped and talked about coins, Myrt would let their pet monkey out in the shop to entertain me. Over the years whenever she would see me, she always asked if I had any chewing gum. Then she would remind me how I would chew the entire pack of gum my Dad bought me at their stiore, so I would not have to give her any. I do recall doing this to intimidate my Dad chewing tobacco, but not to prevent her from having any gum. I will always remember her for being so very friendly, kind, neat, and having a great sense of hunor.
