Libby had an affections smile. Anytime you see her, you see her smile. My most found memory of Libby is when Jesse James came out with the song, I can do bad by myself, back in the early 90's. Libby, Jane, Joyce, Sherry and myself singing and dancing repeatedly to that one song while drinking (The Whip).
