Although Inez was my half-sister, she was more like a beloved Aunt to me. She was so kind to me growing up and I loved her and Bill dearly. She is missed more than she could ever know. In loving memory Chuck "Roger" Culclasure.

I was very saddened to learn of the death of Mrs. Inez. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed talking with her during the many years before my retirement. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
