It has been many years since I have seen Mr. Huff, but I will always remember the good times we had when he use to pick at me at Dr.Barnwells in Washington. Your family was very special to me and I will always remember David standing there at old office and ringing that bell when he was a little boy. God Bless all of you during this time.

Miss Gene Thank you so much for the honor of singing one last time for Mr. Joe. I will miss him when I go to the nursing home. He was a dear man and I loved him as I do all my friends at Greene Point. I like to remember him more at the Homecoming dinners at Bairdstown though. Time passes so fast that it leaves you wondering where everyone has gone. It seems like yesterday that I was a little girl singing with Pope, Mr. L.E. Steele and Preacher Duvall. Those were the days of close family and special memories. Hope to see you soon. Love Nancy
