Orville Jefferson Gray, Jr.

My condolences to William, Jerry, Janet, Eric, Travis on the passing of Annie Mae. I remember the good times when every summer I came to North Carolina for the summer to spend with Dad and Annie Mae, Ann always had a chocolate cake made for me when I arrived. Every Friday after Ann, and Dad got home from work, the task was to figure out where we all wanted to go out to eat, for Friday evening dinner. ..BBQ , Seafood, Fried Chicken, or McDonalds....where they always got the Quarter Pounder with cheese sandwich. I guess the funniest memory is when we all went to a movie theater to see Smokey & The Bandit movie...I remember Ann and Dad, laughing so much, as they really enjoyed the movie as I did also. Rest in peace, and prayers for everyone in the family.
