    Sending lots of love to all of you.  I  have so many wonderful memories. Your mom and grandma taught me so much from hand sewing and card games to living gracefully.   What a beautiful smile she had. She loved all of you ❤ very much.  Aunt Mary Lou and Uncle Ron

    So many great memories of growing up as one of the closely knit loyal Foulk Road Cousins! One in particular was Aunt Peggy determined that she could make my fine straight hair hold a curl! The determined look on her face as she kept trying with that ole fashion curling iron. Back then we didn’t realize how lucky we were to be blessed with 4 parents and also disciplined and guided by which ever one of the four was in our roving vicinity!  Unconditinal Love to you cousins and extended families!Agape, Donnie, Gail and rest of the Miller crew!!!!
