Ronnie, Greg, Sandy and family,
We were so sad to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful woman, and always kind. It was wonderful to spend time with her in more recent years when my mom and I visited her. Your mother was a wonderful friend to her. I would like to remember them both as they were at my mom's 90th brithday. Older, yes. But so full of life and ready to smile. Please know that our prayers are with you all at this time. You are in our thoughts.

Sandra, Ron, & Greg, I remember so many fun times at your home with all of you and your parents;and of course, the visits you made to see us on the dairy in Nacogdoches. You were usually en route to another destination and would stop by to visit us and Uncle Wilford & Aunt Connie.After you were grown & gone from home, we still visited your parents occasionally.Your father always had such beautiful pictures to show us. Later, after we all had lost our fathers, I drove Mother to see Rossie for a long visit. Your mother was such a beautiful person,inside & out,so giving, so intelligent. Janet, Aunt Connie's daughter, told me about the funeral; I would have liked to have come but I'm ill with sinus infection & strep throat. When you have the time, please call me and let's "catch up". I lost my mother this last March; she was 94 but had been very ill for the last 5 yrs.
Sending my love & sympathy, Carolyn (Wells & Lera Parmley's daughter) (936)569-8698; (936)645-0252)
