To Bobby and family and Patsy and family, I remember Mrs. Allen so fondly. She was always smiling and had such a wonderful outlook. I remember when she and my mom arranged for us to ride from McKinney to Oceanside with you, Bobby, as you went to the Navy. I was car sick the whole way and it must have been awful for an 18 year old to have a little kid throwing up all the way to California! But your mom didn't want you to ride alone! God bless all of you. Heaven will be brightened with her presence. Love from Mary Virginia Mary Virginia Holcomb Dickerson, January 3, 2008
