I was truly sorry to learn of the passing of my Aunt Elma. I have many fond memories of Aunt Elma and Uncle Hugh. For the first several years of my life my parents and 4 brothers would pile in the car and drive to Hattiesburg from Olive Branch to spend Christmas with our McWilliams relatives, which, of course, always included Aunt Elma, Uncle Hugh, "Little" Hugh and Melinda.
My mother loved Elma very much and I believe felt a special kinship to her. The feeling she had for Elma certainly influenced mine and my brothers feeling for our Aunt Elma. I will remember her always.
