    Mr. Martin, Joyce, Buddy, Bobby, Tex and Family: It has been forever since the days of Rose Avenue and I am ashamed to say that I haven't seen as many people as I would have liked since I "grew up". I was saddened to see that Mrs. Martin had left us. I remember her as a kind and friendly woman, who always had a warm smile. My deepest sympathy and condolences to each of you. Sincerely, Sheila Youngblood Formerly of 433 Rose Ave.
