I remember a storage yard where they parked all the electric powered street cars after they were retired. I think it was on Mockingbird near Greenville Ave. Anyone remember that?

I'm a bit of a youngin, but I love this thread. I remember the mall at Lochwood and before it's demise it featured alot of antique/knickknack dealers. I remember the theater and the Taylor's bookstore in Casa Linda. After going to a math contest with my mom at SMU it was a major treat to go to Kip's. I believe the roller rink off Forest between Jupiter and Plano is Westlake and it's still in operation. I also remember the Jojo's at Jupiter and Northwest, it closed around '96-97. As a child we often had Sunday lunch at Next Door in Lake Highlands. Our church choir parties were often at Penny Whistle Park.

These cold cases make me so sad. Life goes on, the world keeps spinning, and we all age, then you look back and see these girls its like they are frozen in time. It makes me think of all the things they missed out of, prom, graduation, college, and on and on.

There is always hope, there was a whole string of kidnappings/child killings in Garland, Mesquite, and east Dallas in the mid to late 80's. Many of the girls were about my age, I remember they had special assemblies at school about stranger danger. for a brief time my mom would only let me play in the backyard, and eventually a few houses up the block, and she watched me walk the entire way. It was an absolutely terrifying time, I remember being afraid of any car that slowed down a bit as it drove by. The man who killed those young girls confessed in prison a few years ago. Maybe the families of those two young ladies will get some closure one day.
