I missed the school bus when I was in head start at Belle Elementary. Mommy asked Aunt Janet to come get me. After that , she was always my smiling rescuer. I have a scissors and holder she gave me years ago when I went to visit her. She had made it. She has a legacy of love that will travel down the generations. Much love and many prayers to you all.
