My condolences to the family in the loss of Marie Hill Sellers. I last saw her at her husbands funeral. My dad, Anthony DuBose and I had known him for many years. He was very kind to my dad and I. He took us to see the Colt 45s. play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the old Colt Stadium. I will never forget that. He came to my dad's funeral in 1993 in Waelder.
Billy married a beauty in Marie Hill. I am sure she is related to some of the Hills that I have known over the years. I am sorry that w e will not be able to attend the memorial service. As a minister I have two Baptist functions this Saturday. One is at 11 am a First Baptist Church in Victoria for a memorial service of Mary Jo Kinghorn, who we have known for 40 years. I was on staff there for 15 years. And what Baptist do best we will eat afterwards, and then we will travel to Van Vleck for a Harvest Feast at 6 pm at First Baptist Church. I have served as their Interim Pastor over 8 months. This Sunday November 11 will be my last service there.
To the family: We are praying for you in this sad time, but you and I know where she is now. She is with the Lord, Billy, and other family members.
Anthony DuBose, Jr.
