I am saddened to learn of the passing of your mother. I used to deliver groceries to her in the days when customers could call in their orders. Your father used to stop what he was doing to repair our band’s equipment in the 60s. May God bless and comfort you!
Dear Jeneil: Sorry to hear about your mama. Don’t know if you recall me or not but I use to be one of the kind ones(ha ha) that waited on you at Grizzard’s Outlet. May it be of some consolation that to know your Mama is in a much better place. Email me sometime when you get a chance. God Bless Bonnie
Sending you my condolences from Chapel Hill. Frannie was the reason I traveled. I will always remember the map that she had in her kitchen with the pins locating the places that she had visited. I remember looking at that and thinking I too would like to see the world. I have seen quite a bit of it as well…..all thanks to Frannie and her willingness to open up her home to me!
