"I remember the woman that bought that house when I was just a kid. I went to school with her son."

"What were their names?" I asked, wanting to research their backgrounds.

"The boy I went to school with was Mark Finch. I think his mother's name was Betty. Anyway, Mark's dad worked at a factory over in the next town. Ain't there no more, the factory nor the town. Anyhows, Mark's father had an accident at the factory and died. So they gave Mark's mom some money."
