  2. I am Cora Mae Knowles Tidwell’s step daughter and her husband, Charles’ daughter.
    I did not know Lucille well but visited with her several times in the nursing home with Cora before Cora died in 2013.
    Lucille was always very nice and sweet to me.
    I remember going out to the home place. Gerald was there and I got the best tomatoes, peas, onions and okra from his garden. This was probably nearly ten years ago.
    Cora told me many stories of the hardships Lucille and David had and how resilient people they were. I did not know David. Cora always spoke kindly of both of them and loved them deeply.
    Rest In Peace Lucille. You deserve it.
    God bless the remaining family.
