  1. As First Cousins we never lived close to each other but we visited as much as we could over the years. You in Ga and me in Tn was difficult to make the trip unless we could hitch a ride with someone. Over the years we kind of lost touch and each went our separate ways. Your mom sent me a photo of you your brother and sister and I have them on my book case and look at them often. You will be missed. God Bless!

  2. I’m so sorry 😞 to hear about Aunt Edna passing away! She was so sweet & kind! She will be surely missed!😢 I hope Steve, Donald & Tracy are doing Well! Again, so sorry for your loss! ❤
