    We are so sorry to have lost a long time friend, Frances Lockamy. I have such wonderful memories of our Christmas dinners at Seagate and how Frances and I would be sitting up front and it never failed that I would say something that would crack her up. She would tell me to hush right now I am trying to eat! She would laugh for quite a while even if I just looked at her. Our heartfelt sympathy to Johnny, John, Audrey, David, Ann and Ezell and all of the family. We loved her.
