It was Christmas of 1969; I was in 7th grade at Whittier Jr. High. I belonged to the Stepping Stones program, and we went and met both Mr. and Mrs. Mott in the foyer at Applewood. We sang Christmas carols to them. They were both really nice people and treated us really good that’s why it means so much to me. I learned treating people how you want to be treated means a lot, and I will never forget that Christmas. I was blessed to have met them.
