My deepest condolences to Uncle Tommy and cousins Daryl and Jenny.Your mom had a zest for life that was apparent wherever she went. I kept hoping to see her more often at the family reunions,but lost touch when Margie and Kenneth stopped hosting them in Sargent,GA in the 1980's. I now live in Conyers,GA if you want to get together sometime.
