  1. The “kids of 7th st” can t recall childhood memories without Etta playing a large roll in it whether educating us on the names of all the flowers around the house, taking a group to the Strand to see the original Mickey Mouse Club, sharing the stories of her travels to all 50 states or just running a toothpick thru our hair in school. Thank you Etta for some great memories and my thoughts go out to her family
