From Kathy Miller: "In either December 1984 or January 1985, our third son, Tyler, was 7 or 8 months old and wanted to be with the older kids outside. They created the box on the sled and pulled him around the yard. My mother-in-law had made the little red winter jacket for Tyler. Friend and neighbor up the street on Creston in Boardman (we still live there) is Stephen Bupp and Tyler's older brother, Nathan, in beige/tan jacket dreamed up the box on a sled idea.
