In Memory

Flavia "Vicky" Smith (Hesselbach)

Flavia Vicky Smith (Hesselbach)

Polly received a phone call from Flavia Smith's brother today and we were sad to hear that she passed away November 17, 2017.  Her family called her "Vicky" so possibly some of our classmates knew her by that name also.

I didn't keep up with Flavia in high school, but in elementary school we were friends.  She was very fast, and in the 6th grade so was I -- my feet grew after that and it took a while to grow into them.  I would chase her and she would chase me--seems like everytime I turned around she was after me.  Really fun!

I walked Flavia home from school one day, carrying her books and all...  She stopped and then told me she wore a Bra. I said that was nice and we kept walking.  Later that night I asked my mom what a bra was??  She said, "You know honey, a Brassiere."  I was so embarrassed as I did indeed know what a Brassiere was.  Flavia and didn't talk much after that...  RIP friend.

Jerry, did you have a chance to read some of your original poetry to Flavia before the bra incident?
