My memory is the things I shared with my sister Melba. Some of these are at our home growing up and the things she did for me. She was very generous sister and someone I could talk to about anything. I will miss her.

Vickie - I wasn't sure how to reach out to you. I wanted to let you know how sorry I am to hear about your Mom. I remember coming to your house to spend the night...getting homesick and having to go home, just a few years ago. I miss seeing you at the Maxx. I Just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
