I was at the Free Will Baptist Orphanage 1949-59 with Robert Lane. His nickname was Toe and mine was Duck. We were in the same grade in school, played on the orphanage baseball team together and high school basketball and baseball. His brother Jacob married my sister Nancy. He was an orphan brother I'll always miss.  Jerry Smith
