On behalf of our family I would like to extend our condolences to your family. There are so many memories in the past with your family and I enjoyed walking down the road with Aubrey by the house and dropping in and talking with Mrs. Herron. It was never Cora. Always Mrs. Herron. It always amazed me how that many people lived in your home. God bless your family. Mrs. Herron is now with Mr. Herron.
