Roger and Sharon ( Suzy ) Hammond from Canada. This couple came down to visit us and met my mom and fell in love with her so they ask me to sign this book for them. Roger spent many days talking with my Mom and she loved them both and spoke of them very often.

Miss Ethyl, I didn't get to spend a great deal of time with you but what time I did get to share with truly were a blessing in my life. I loved your laughter and your kindness. Rest in peace and we will see one another again one day

To my mother and sister with a heavy heart I have been thinking of one of the greatest women in my life as being gone forever and a tragic loss. A calm comes over me as I realize I also have gained two even greater women as I see all of the best of my grandmother comming out in y'all. She was and till her last breath and beyond so proud of y'all and loved her girls deeply.
Love your son and brotther.....Mister
