To the Anton and Mary Mock family.
Charlotte, Jan, and I share your loss of your loved sister and our beloved cousin and we very saddened by the loss. Mary was older than me and was very nice to me when I stayed with you all in the late forties and early fifties. I am sorry I wasn't a better cotton picker. :). I always enjoyed visiting with her at the Wagner family reunion. We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Sadly, Bill and the McIntyre Family

Sincerely, Lorraine George
