What a strong woman that graced this world with her presence. Didnt see her much along the way but as a youngster she was always the driving force behind Tannehill electric and im sure she kept Hank from killing me along the way.Thank you alice for understanding I wanted to be an entertainer not a electrician. I love you and God bless you always. Love Gary Graham
