Ritchie, Judy and all the family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. I will cherish the times Mrs. York was with you at 2 sisters. She was always so sweet to us. I loved to hear her stories about the restaurant back in the "Liberty Drive In," days and times before then as well!! Prayers for Gods comfort. Blessings to you all!!
