What a voice---you were always going to be heard! I first came to know you because you were instrumental in picking me up for church in my freshmen and sophomore years while I attended college at T.S.U. You were always a listening ear and encouraged me when the need arose. Thank you for being "you." You will never be forgotten!!! I can hear you now
singing that devotional hymn you sang often, "I'll fly away." Family, you have my deepest sympathy. May you receive comfort and strength in your time of need.
