Mary Ann and Jay
So sorry for your loss. Always thought so much of your Mom and Dad. My time went way back with the Coleman family since I grew up on the old gin lot in Talty and also knew your Granddad Layden from St Martin's in Talty. You have had a long life with you Dad hope he was in fair health most of his life. Your family will be in my prayers
