    Remembering Cushman’s and Tom Lockhart I googled and was directed here. I only wish I’d come much sooner.

    65 years have passed…yet I remember him still as a kind man with a sunny disposition.
    The lettering “Tom Lockhart” on the door of his black and white Cushman’s van.

    Begging my mother to buy a mocha cake (“moch a” as I pronounced it)

    Glad to see Mr. Lockhart had a long life…he deserved it.
