Tim and family, First we are very sorry for your loss. Gail who was about my sister Evelyn's age grew up in the best of times and the worst of times.
I bet they could both tell us some good stories about the good old days. But I think they also saw the struggle families go through. However, they carried on with that "WHITE" spirit.
