    Will be leaving Thursday and arriving Friday to connect with Tommy and others. Mother, thanks for being a caring and giving mother. I remember when we 2ere teens and had a paper route _ you were always there with breakfast, transportation; even when weather was bad. Presently I just wish I could down as my wife and I prepare to leave. "I just cut myself shaving!" I love you mother, Robert, [Bobby]

    Nanie was very welcoming to me when I joined the Taylor family almost 10 years ago. I have countless letters and cards she sent our family over the years. She made us all feel special and important. Never forgot a birthday or holiday. A card, along with a handwritten letter was always in the mailbox to let us know she cared. I will remember Nanie's kindness and thoughtfulness always.
