We are so sorry for your loss. Effie Mae was a cousin of mine on my daddy’s , (Tom Cleo Morgan), side.
Although I had not seen her for many years, I would hear bits and pieces about her from my husband, Roy, who was a friend of Bernard Miles and Kenny’s, ( Green Meadows C. C. ), and he knew Buckshot and BB.
My memories of Effie Mae take me back to my childhood. I remember her as a sweet and beautiful person.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless and keep you.

Sandy, buckshot, bb,
I'm am very sorry . She was a sweet fiesty classy lady who I loved and admired. She gave me several good pieces of advice that I still follow today. I talk about her and your dad and Mr Johnny often to the twins. Sending love and prayers.
