(When I listed Nita’s surviving children yesterday, I named the three girls and left off Lloyd. Sorry, Lloyd.)

Nita was one of the sweetest ladies David and I have ever know!

To Know Her Was to love her!

Yesterday, I just couldn’t bring myself to writing that Peyton and Iva Jane Travis had been killed. I do not have an obituary yet, but will post one when it is available. Pray for this family and and their many friends who were blessed to enjoy their smiles and laughter.
