  • I went to school at Manor Park elementary school. I had a Harry Stigler in my class. 2nd or 3rd grade. He was a sweet boy with a kind heart. He knew I loved turtles. He put one in my pencil tray in my desk. I’m pretty sure it was a baby snapper but he said it was a mud turtle. I’m 70, so you know it is a special memory to have retained it all these years.
