I was 20 years old and living in Weaver with my parents. I had a good babysitting job on Jacksonville Street. I worked for Bob and Jean Daniels. They had four beautiful, well-behaved girls.

The girls were playing and doing homework for school. I had dinner on the stove, everything was great.

Suddenly, that changed when they announced on TV what had happened to President Kennedy. Words can’t even describe how badly I felt.

I was afraid some other country was going to attack us. I couldn’t imagine someone from our country would do that.

I felt so badly for his wife and little children. How in the world could you live through having to tell the children and then go through your grief and funeral with the whole world watching.
