If you were really born and raised in the "Mission Valley", you would remember Socorro Road was covered by cottonwoods trees from beginning to end, Ysleta to Fabens and city people of El Paso going for a ride in the country, having picnics. Semi-pro baseball games on Sunday afternoons, the towns' church bazaars were a family and friend gathering. And also the numerous sons and daughters have left the area.
