Aunt Billie, Clint, Donna and Jeana, I want you all to know my love, thoughts and prayers are with you especially now. I know your great faith in the promise of our Lord will help you and comfort you. To Uncle Cecil, thank you for teaching me a life long lesson, one Saturday morning over 40 years ago. I had said an unkind word to my own daddy, as teenagers sometimes do, and you heard me. As you were leaving you said to me, in so many words, how powerful an unkind word can be. I want you to know, after you left, I went to daddy and hugged him and apologized. That wasn't the last unkind word I ever said, Uncle Cecil, but your words have always been my conscious...my lesson..,your legacy to your niece who loves you so much. Thank you.
