growing up in the "holler" near Mr. Mack and Miss Lovie and your granddad Mr. Luther, I would like to express my condolences on the loss of your son in his tragic accident. I often reminise of our days on Rush Creek and the values I took away with me when I left Cannon County so many years ago. I remember that all the neighboring farm family helped each other when it was time to gather the hay or hand the tobacco or gather the corn from those small hill side farms. Give my best to your family.
