To Miss “Ruby Carolyn” and family. Please know that the Register family is thinking of y’all tonight and all the wonderful memories of Mr. Daniel. I credit Ms. Carolyn so much with taking care of the Registers when she worked as a legal secretary for my late father, Frank Register. Mr. Daniel was great to us as well. I called Oakleaf and they (as they should) couldn’t tell me much but I’ll have Mrs. Storey send her flowers tomorrow. Much love and peace of mind to Harry, Larry, and Wally along with their families. My cell number is 803.223.3733 if yall need anything, just name it. ❤️
