To Barbara and all the boys and their family. I'm sorry I haven't been, I been dealing with sickness myself. I sometimes think about seeing you all, but I don't have a car anymore and I have no choice but to just remember when I was a kid going to your house to Uncle David and Aunt theola. Last time I saw Purvis, he looked so much like Uncle David, it brought back so many memories. I love you all , and I know God will help you through all this . God Bless You all.

Barbara, This is Rachel (Taylor) Melton your cousin from TN. I am Mallie Taylor and William (Bill) Taylors daughter. I haven.t seen you in years. I use to ask Beverly about you. I am so sorry about your husband. My husband died in 2007 from lung cancer. It is still so hard. I guess you knew mama died in 2013. She was 103. I hope you are doing good.

Love, Rachel
