  1. Dear Gail and All,
    We just heard about Aunt Martha, my mom’s step-brother’s wife. I have such good memories of her and Uncle Bub. They were both at our house here in Batesville many years ago on one of their trips to the Strawberry and Jesup communities. Aunt Martha was such a sweet lady and I loved her dearly. She will always hold a special place in our hearts. The Tucker’s send our love and condolences to you all. – Tommy
