Randy, I had found a letter I wanted to share with Elnora, old one that she and I probably only ones left it would make anmy sense to. I'd tried several times and then kinda came to conclusion where to look next. Much to my sorrow I found her obituary. She was a great one for sure. The last of the "Haraway First Cousins , I think. And there were many. She had called me some time after Uncle Belue passed, still sounded strong and supportive. I'll always remember that call. My sympathy to you and family, Ronnie Haraway
