Nancy, Debra, and Jan,
So very sorry for the loss of your mother. She was so kind and sweet to all us little kids in school. I know you will miss her. I remember once on the old ball field at Mt. Pleasant your parents doing the Mexican Hat dance at home plate. They were very good and never missed a step. This had to be in the mid-late 50's. I remember wishing I could dance like them.

My mother sends her sympathy.

Y'all are in my prayers.

Katie loved her girls and grandchildren and great grands. She loved being in the chaos of family vacation. I loved my time visiting with her and watching her enjoying the chaos. She was the sweetest and most welcoming lady ever!she made me feel like I was her own. She will be missed but what a wonderful legacy she has left behind to be a guardian angel to. This is a picture of her last visit to the beach watching all the action. Love and prayers to the whole family.
