I used to joke with Uncle George and my father Walter as to whose child was I. I have both of them as part of my being. My Uncle with his warped humor and my father with his seriousness. I Loved them both. Aunt Mary deserves a medal for putting up with George and his antics. They are both dog lovers. P. S. Aunt Mary and Marcy, my phone will not charge so if you need to get a hold of me call Vicki 912-342-9444. We have transportation now so I will be there this Saturday.

Craig H. Rotureau, Pooler, Ga.

Marcy, my thoughts and prayers are with you and family. Annette Goodrich
