It is very sad to see that another Dear Friend has returned to her Heavenly home. Ann and my Wife were very good friends over the years from the 30's till now through school and at our wedding on September 11th, 1954 at the Baptist Church where Ann sang the song, " OH PROMISE ME " before we said our vows 64 years ago. She shall be truly missed and my Condolences to the Daughters and there Families. May the good LORD watch over each and every one of you.
