I have very fond memories of living in Harmony Hills during the early 1940s. My father managed the estate, and our family enjoyed a splendid lifestyle during those years. Dr. King and Dr. Fletcher were very influential in my future career selections. Dr. King cured my brother of his stuttering problems. Ms. Lawrence was kind and warm.

Just saw the movie Interrupted Melody on TV--very well done and inspirational. Thank you! I am seventy-nine and from St. Louis; as a kid, I fished in Arkansas.
