Ray, Frank and my husband, Charles williams (chuck) were in service together and at U>T. Frank and Vernell spent many nights with us while Frank worked on his Masters degree. They then lived in Tullahoma. Before that, Frank was best man in our wedding. While they were in school, Vernell and I often got togeter to shop or whatever, after you boys were asleep. Many fond memories. Could tell you other things we did, but not for now. I loved your Mom and talked to her off and on through the years but did not know what had happened. Just searched compputer and found this obit today. I am leaving Knoxville, just sold home of 48 years, and moving to Melbourne, FL to be near my son Brian. Have another son Brent who lives here. I pray the very best for you and your family.
