Billy Dean, your mom was such a good neighbor to my parents, the Hall's, for a long time.
The last time i saw her was in WalMart grocery center. We chatted for a time. She was like me, loved Clinchfield. She was a wonderful lady and though she had a good, long life I know you will miss her. Doris Hall Robinson
