Rhonda & Jamie
Your Mother and I spent lots of time together. We were in training together, were in New Orleans together and graduated together. I was in MS in Sept. and she came down to Houston and spent some time with Mac Streeter and myself. I'm so glad we have that to remember. My name is Mildred
Dickson Friend and I live in Norfolk, VA. Head called me Dick and Mac is Nellie Mae McCormick. In years pass what good times we had together. Mac and I will miss her. I remember your Dad and when the two of you were born.
In sympathy and love for your Mother.
