I remember Mr. & Mrs. Snipes from our
Hardee breakfasts when Mrs. Williams was the manager and we had a "breakfast club". Someone was kind enough to make a list of all the faithful members and we kept in contact. If someone missed a day or two we would contact them to see what was wrong. Mrs. Snipes was always very friendly and had that big smile on her face every time you saw her. May God bless her family. I know she will be missed very much.
