Pau,l I remember you as a little girl coming down to see Daddy in Greeneville Tennessee. You and Daddy were first cousins. I always thought it was such a big deal because there you was a Tennessee State Trooper coming to visit us. I remember when Dad got the news that you'd had your heart attack he cried like a baby. Daddy passed away in 1995. From that day on you were together again never to be separated.
