My family lived at 157 Rencher Ave, Howard, from 62 - 66. It was a
single family thing just down the hill from the Commander's manse. We
moved there from Ft. Clayton  where we had lived for a few years
before. I went to Los Rios ES, Diablo Heights JHS and BHS until we
went north in May of '66.

There were four kids, Sisters Susan, Sally and Mary.

My daughter lives in Penonome so I get back to Panama quite a bit
these days. As you have posted, Kobbe/Howard has become a residence
community, Panama Pacifico and is pretty upscale, but you can still
see traces of the old place.

Thanks for the site.
