  1. Growing up in Cadiz, I remember the great Meadows family, Gary (Sonny) being my classmate (CHS ’59) and remember fondly the nice atmosphere that Gary’s Mom and Dad provided for us as we went about the business of being kids. (I bought one of my first cars from his industrious Dad in 1963 (’55 Chevy) and always enjoyed running in and out of the house as kids and buddies do Mr.s Meadows was always so accommodating to us. God bless your family Gary, as we continue our e – mail by by day news! I can imagine how much you will miss her!
