Your mother was such a sweetheart to my mother when they were roommates at Hawkins. My sister and I enjoyed her so much. Sympathy to you

We are so sorry to hear of Earnestine's passing. I remember her calling daddy periodically to check in with him. Well now, they all are checking in and having a great reunion in heaven. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Much love to you all.
