My grandmother Neeta Pearl Yates( Allen) and Uncle Judson Yates were sister and brother, believe me there were plenty of this family. The family reunions that were given since before and after I was born were many. I always loved them all, having a large family is great even though more seemed to be added each year, being a child myself I always looked for Uncle Judson and Aunt Hattie's bunch. Though they were older than me they always had time for me, I never forgot this. I always looked for Joyce because she always took up a lot of time with me,she was "tom-boyish" like me, loved being outside, always worked hard and loved her family. The last time I saw her we both were having an adjustment done to our dental plates, wouldn't you know it. I Love You Joyce always. to her family, I am so sorry for your loss, I didn't know until now. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. don't you know she is up there with the "true Master Gardner" and she is helping him . God Bless you all, your cousin Deborah
