I remember when I was very young, going to Uncle Pinks and Aunt was like going back in time. I loved seeing them and the farm and fields. Aunt Elsie was my granddaddy Babe Lawrence's sister. My memories of Eudene were our family reunuions..what good times we all had.. Then, later when she and Joyce came to visit at Ora Lee's, both on their walkers..but they didn't let that slow them down.. what a nice lady.

Sending my love and condolences. I have such good memories of Eudeen and all the kids that were still at home, from our childhood when Mother would take us to see Uncle Pink and Aunt Elzie on through our lives when we would meet at the Family Reunions every year! For those that might not know. Aunt Elzie was my Grandfather's older sister. His name was Henry "Babe" Lawrence. Our Mother was Opal Lawrence Whitworth. We always had fun at the George's Creek Tabernacle, getting to see all the families we hadn't seen in a year, playing in the mountain of silica sand down by the creek, and having a great meal. Eudeen was only about 7 years older than me. Then later on the Reunion was held at Mother's sister, Ora Lee LeBoeuf's river bottom in Rainbow. After they were held there for decades it was moved to the Citizen's Center in Glen Rose so it could be indoors. The reunions were held on one of the hottest days of the year, just before Labor Day! Never knew why they picked that day! As everyone got older it was just too hot outside to do it anymore. That got too expensive so my sister, Betty Ann then started having it at the Community Center and it worked out good for a few years but a lot of us got too many health problemsto go. I can't go anymore and a lot of others have passed away or are not able. Now it seems to be funerals are the only place where we get to see family and I haven't been able to do that for a couple of years.

I pray for y'all to have comfort and strength to get through these hard times. I have found there is nothing like good memories to get through the loss. I love all of you! Joyce I will call one day and we will visit for a while!
