Allen it seems as if we never get to talk or see each other until something like this happens. We talked on the phone last night and talked about how much Mama and Aunt Barbara reminded us of each other. They were both always trying to keep their families together at holidays, birthdays and so forth. They also were very soft spoken. When we lost Mama 9 years ago she and Robert always took it upon themselves to call and check on our family all the time. When Daddy was in Shoreland she called and checked on him. I will never forget he wanted some collards and cornbread and she cooked them for him and called me when they were ready and I went and picked them up. You would always know that she was there for you. She and Mama always looked out for others instead of taking care of themselves. Know that my heart is with you and your family during this time. I ask God to give you all the strength to get thru the days ahead of you. Also don't forget what I told you last night if you ever need anything even if it's just to talk call me. You've got my number. Sending love your way.
