Whitney(Blackie) was my husband for 25 years. When we retired from Halliburton we bought a camp at Toledo Bend, on the Texas side. We had great plans we were going to travel a lot, and fish all we could. But our health got the best of us. Blackie I'm not there with you at this time you know I will always love you and we will be together again someday. I miss you so much.
