  1. To all the Jordan’s,
    I am so sorry to hear about your mother, But as you all know, blessings sometime time come in long, sad goodbyes! I think of all of you as I drive down Jordan’s thrill hill and all the fun we had playing in that creek and yard. What a wonderful way to grow up! I will forever remember your mother, who always welcomed little neighbors, with a smile on her face and love in her heart! Love you guys, Nan

  2. I learned of both Uncle Hugh and Aunt Betty’s death today when our Christmas card to them was returned undeliverable
    and then we did some googling.
    My wife and I have been sharing Hugh and Betty and Stone Mountain stories
    and thinking about them today. And sighing a lot..
