    Garland,Marilyn,Pat, Seldon, Kevin, Carla and family I am so sad for the passing of Eunice. I loved talking to her at market all these years. She was one of the ones that knew things about the past that were very interesting. I will miss her. I pray that God gives you all the comfort that makes this time of grieving easier.
