Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your loved one.
I am doing PRATT research and was wondering if your family could be connected to mine. My ancestors are PRATT's of AL, GA, and the Carolina's. They are all of the south. Please e-mail me -

My family joins me in expressing our love to Margo and family. Margaret was a lovely, charming Southern lady and I am glad I had the opportunity to know her. I will always cherish the memories of the times we shared.
