    Diane - I am so sorry to hear of your sister Betty Faye's passing. She had been on my mind lately and I wondered if she were still in the area. Mom, you and she were good friends when Mom and Daddy married and I am sure they will be doing some catching up in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of her loved ones. God bless you all. Nancy Lyles Sonnier (daughter of Linda Cheshire Lyles)
