Four cousins growing up as children, Sunday dinners at our Kennedy grandparents home, playing Rook, being mischievous, eating Aunt Frances lemon meringue pie, good childhood memories. I moved away after I married Carl in 1957 and we never moved back to TN. Now I am the only one still on this earth. Save a place for me. I understand the “best is yet to come!” Condolences to the family and friends! My heart is full! Jimmie Louise.
