I remember spending time with my Aunt Annie Rose and Uncle Vernon as a child. Annie Rose was straight forward, kind, patient, even tempered, humorous and could feed an army of children without breaking a sweat. (I really liked her Chile Rellenos!) I witnessed her love for her family and her community. (In her memory my brother, sister and I honored her through the Texas Lion Camp in Kerrville, Texas!) She had an especially endearing off-handed, tiny-bit smirky little laugh which seemed to represent her attitude toward life. And oh I how I wish I had that head of hair of hers.

Dear "Shock Boys" and your beautiful families. I will forever miss my Aunt Annie Rose. I am thankful for her influence in my life. And, I am proud to be part of the family she and Vernon raised. Much Love, Diane.

Danny, Billy, and Jimmy,
I am reminded of our active youth group at Trinity Presbyterian Church as I morn with you, the loss of your Mom. Both of your parents were major pieces in the puzzle that made that church work for us kids. Since those years, I see the struggle with keeping a youth program going which has made me more aware of the effort all of our parents must have put forth to provide that peer group of support for us. I needed that peer group and I thank each of you for being a part of it. And, I am now thanking your Mom for her part in it too.
