Jennifer & Rosemary-
Just read about your moms passing in The Roanoke Times and am sad for your loss.
First thing I thought of was when the whole side of the McKee family got together in
Buena Vista. Everyone set at the ‘big’ table while we were relegated to a card table
in the corner.

I have had many cherished thoughts of your mother, father, and you. Although we only met for a short time, Frenchie impressed me so, with her fun personality and kindness. Such a lovely lady; our world was blessed to have her.
So sorry for your loss. Bless you.
