Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Alice… so sorry to hear about your Mom… she was a real sweet lady.. always will remember how welcome she made me feel in her home…the ladies of Lagrange are thinking of you… we have a webpage on facebook… miss you..

  2. I have so many fond memories of spending time at ya'lls house growning up. I had the nicest visit with your parents a few years ago in the apartment. Patti and I were talking about the bird your Mom gave her,oh she gets out on the cage and stays there all day took the cage home, opened it up and the bird flew off…

  3. My favorite story:When I was 14, I was visiting for a few weeks. I liked to lay out and tan with Mary Jo and Alice. One of the boys' friends kept dumping iced water on me- and it was around 100 out! Aunt Vere had an idea and helped me make cookies for the boy- they were filled with red pepper and iced with Exlax! He grabbed a handful and gobbled them down, as only teenaged boys can do. I bet he drank 2 gallons of water! Then his family left town a few minutes later for a road trip! Was his father mad! All those stops! I still laugh today about it! She really had a good and wicked sense of humor in those days!
