Sorry to have gotten the Valley paper late and missed the obit until after the weekend. We're sure you have many, many great memories. It doesn't seem possible to be this long since we were all in school in the valley or we were just starting teaching and having our daughters in Shoals. Merry Christmas and hoping you all have a happy new year.
