Eunice, Curtis, Vance, and the baby! So sorry to hear of Uncle Robert's passing. I will always remember the warm and inviting times at your home and the ice cream! Mom and Dad (Jean and will Jerrol) along with everyone else will be welcoming him home with tears of joy. So nice to see all the pictures .... they brought back so many memories from long ago.

Eunice, please take care of yourself and I am sending you the biggest, warmest, virtual hug that I can wiggle thru the ethernet . Curtis, next time you see your Mom, please give her a big bear hug for me,

Love, Cousin Sue
