Dear Nancy,
This is Glenda Mann ( daughter of Lucy Warford Mann). My mother was a first cousin to your mom. Their dads were brothers (Walter and Homer Warford). I was sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing- I learned from my brother who lives in Evansville. I have fond memories of your parents bringing you, your brothers , and your Grandmother Joyce to Oblong for visits. You are much younger than me so may not remember. I was Chris’ age I have letters your Grandfather Homer sent to my Grandfather Walter when he (Homer) was in WW I. I will send them to you if you will e-mail your address.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Glenda
