      Laura -- did you take piano lessons from Mrs. Pope who lived between Taylor & Granger?
      Your name sounds familiar. I now live in Lubbock but go back to Taylor as often as I can. I took piano lessons from Mrs. Pope for 6 years. My memory is associating your name with music recitals.

      name was Vitek. It is so nice to find the TexasCzechs
