I just heard about "Marshe". I am sorry I did not know about it sooner. I spent many many happy times while growing up at your home with your family. Your Mom was always so warm and the table was always full of food. I don't know how she fed so many people every day but she always had it waiting when you all came through the door in the evening. What special memories you all have to cherish. Thinking of you all.

I met Archie Tatum and Leonard Ingram back in 1961 at the Salthouse Campgrounds. From that day a fridnship flousished as I met their wives and children. Precious memories was the song that I sang as I drove back home from Mill Creek Baptist Church. Leonard and Martha were such very special friends to me. Pastor Billy Tatum and Harold's daughters summed up the beauty of your Mom. She was so special and the times I got to spend at her table will long be special to me. I love you all and will be praying for each of you.
