What can I say, so many memories of Shirley, Carl, Mrs. Maizelle, and Wallace were my family and helped me through some hard times. Carl, you may not remember me, but I am so very sorry about your Mom. Take care of your grandchildren and be good to yourself. May God continue to pour blessing on you and your entire family. Such a sweet person.
