    Charles and U were so sorry to hear about Mrs. Katherine's passing. I took my Mom Elvina Johnson last month to visit her at the home. She looked so good that day and talked to me about Billy. I told her he was visiting his sisters in Simmesport and I told Angela to bring him to see her. I later heard that they had a great visit! RIP Mrs. Katherine, you were such a precious lady!!
