Hello Phamie, Jean, and Andy, Our childhood memories form a special part of my life, and your mother and entire family are central to what I remember. When I am in Farmerville and see the house where you lived, I always think of the days when we had birthday parties together, performed in dance recitals together, and went to school together. Nonie and I have CDs of many of these and other events together. It's a blessing to have lifetime friends, and Nonie and I cherish the memories. Blessings during this time, Johnette Edwards McKown and Stan
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Phamie, Jean and Andy, I was so sorry to open the paper this morning and read of the death of your mother. Unfortunately I have to be in New Orleans on Thursday and will not be able to be with you in Bernice for her service. But please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Of course I remember the good times we had at your home in Bernice--wow, how many years ago was that? Good memories. Your mom was a special person. Love, Craig
