Frankie,
Today I received an email from the Murrah Reunion Committee.

Lately your Mother has been on my mind. Saddened to hear of her passing but at the same time celebrating a Wonderful Lady. My memories go all the way back to her at Watkins School, in the office.

Peace be with you as you go forward.

I have very fond memories of all of the Ellzey Family.
