    To Sammi, Dottie, Becky, Debbie & David…. We are sorry for your loss. Mom and I were just talking about your mom last week. We were saying how good she looked the last time we saw her. That was several years ago. Me, Mom and Daddy went up there to see her. Daddy’s health got bad and he has since passed but Mom is doing good. Daddy died on his birthday in ’07. Uncle Bill died about 3 years ago. We wanted to come but Carla, my little Sister is having by-pass surgery tomorrow and we will be at the hospital for the next few days. She will be in ICU for a few of them. Every trip down Cole Road brings back alot of good memories. I loved going to ya’lls house (across the street from Wannie & Paw Paws) and visiting with your grandmother, Ms Palmer, in her trailer. Time has flown by. So, we sending our love and wish we could be there.
