To Uncle Laymon and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you as as I reflect on all the good times we had in Jackson growing up. Aunt Ida was so nice and sweet. I loved her smile and her calm demeanor. I had not seen her in years, but I shall never forget her kindness toward Sue and me. May Jehovah continue to bless you all. Curtis and Dorsey Kendrick
