Jerry, Charlotte, and your family: My sympathy with the loss of your Mom and Grandma. Heaven is now a sweeter place with Lucille there. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We lived on nearby farms when I was a young kid in the 1930's. Lucille would bring her two boys, Jerry and Keith, over to visit when they were just toddlers. Clifton and my dad, Burton Dodd, were first cousins. Until recent years, Lucille always remembered me with a card at Christmas. She led a busy productive life. God bless.
