Fond memories of your Mom and Grandmother remain despite the many years that have elapsed since we last visited. Shirley Mae and my Mom were first cousins, daughters of Aunt Rita and Aunt Euna. Her animated spirit and distinctive voice captured my attention whether we met at one of the Cline sisters' homes or at the False River Camp. If memory serves me well, my late Mom was privileged to serve as Shirley Mae's Godmother. May God bless and comfort each of you.
