    For me, Aunt Violet will be remembered for her sharing stories of double “dating” with Mother and Dad. I also remember the stories Mother used to tell of the sisters singing together at revivals. Now they can sing in the heavenly choir together. She was special to us all.

    Sorry to hear of Violets passing, I lived across the street from Edger and Violet growing up on Central and enjoyed many afternoons of sitting on their porch talking.
