I lived on Lotts Creek until I was 15 then moved to Arizona with my grandparents Zavan and Ida Ritchie. I went to school with Roy B. He and his brother Robert were such good boys, good looking too. Sad to hear of his passing, I just found out. I have two half brothers and a half sister on Lotts Creek still. Haskel, JB Ritchie and Reva Joyce Campbell. I miss my Old Ky home a lot. I live near Zions National Park in St George, Utah now. Would love to hear from anyone back home. Violet Payne
