To Willie Britt’s Family,
My mother, Lottie Cullipher counts Willie as one of her best friends. Lottie moved away from Colerain a few years ago to be near her sons. She spoke of Willie often when she talked about times in Colerain. Lottie has fond memories of better times that she and Willie shared.
