Always enjoyed the times I was with My Aunt Erma’ s best friends-your sweet Mother and Ms. Alene. They were so loveable and entertaining! I was with them at the hospital during Uncle Junior’s last hours. They each shared their experiences when they “hit the big city”—so funny; and how special their friendship had been. I know Heaven is sweeter now! Prayers for your family, Patsy Bozeman
