Craig, Clay and Brad:
You may not remember who I am. I am Earl and Annetta Humphreys daughter. My parents have gone to be with the Lord already. My Mom 16 years ago my Dad 10 years ago.
I want to say how sorry I am about your Dads passing. I remember him well. We would go over to your Uncle Bud and Aunt Shirleys house and see your Dad and Mom. We were also at your house a few times. I have memories of going to your Grandpa and Grandma Phares house with my Grandpa Dotson. He thought so much of them.
Needless to say, your Dad was a character!! My parents thought so much of him and Bud. It’s so hard knowing they are are gone now. They had so many great times together. After your Dad moved to Florida, he would always come by their house when he was back in Missouri.
I don’t know if your Mom is still living. If she is I hope she is doing well. Tell her hello from me.
Again sending hugs to all of you. 💕
