Billy,David, Barbara, Shirley, Violet, Dorothy. Sorry to hear of your Mom. I can remember of all the many years I knew her from myself as a child to the years now as an adult she was always kind to me. I will always treasure the facts she gave me about my life as a small child. I always knew much of my young life as I got older. Recently when we had our family reunion on steiner Rd your mother gave me something I will never forget. I realized she was the only one that would know my life from a baby to 5 years old. As we set there in chairs in the yard she gave some needed information of my first few years I will always have. GOD BLESS HER!
