Dear cousins, I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Lauretta's passing. Dad and I were reminiscing about him and Mom visiting your folks in NC in the late 90s - . We have lost almost all that generation. I have information on our shared family if you have interest. Please accept my sympathies on your loss.
