My Prayers are with the entire family and May God Bless Each of you. I've known Mrs. Leta V. since I moved to Apple Springs in 1971. She was a beautiful lady and only had nice things to say about any person she knew or ever meet. We all enjoyed visiting with her at our Ladies Monthly Luncheon talking about her family and what all has happened here in our small community. Mary Madden, Apple SAprings, Tx.
