    Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around Billy and Sue, Mama (Shirley Tate) and Wayne, Pete and Gracie and other family and friends in their “heyday” living life to the fullest each weekend and culminating with the best chicken dinner ever at Aunt Bertha’s house. In the end that’s all we have are memories and the promise of spending eternity with our loved ones. Know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers..
