I remember growing up at Memorial Bpt. with your family. They are surely missed. Elsie, your mom & now your dad. When my kids were small, I was taking them to have their picture made and our car broke down on the mountain. Your parents came by & insisted they take us back home. Being stranded with two little kids is no fun. I was glad they happened by. Prayers for you & your family.
