    To Jackie and Family: Miss Alise was so nice and always so pretty. I remember her so well from my youth when you and she came to visit Miss Susie. So sorry to read of her death.

    Mrs Austin was supportive of us at our business Harlow Produce Co. We enjoyed seeing her come. It was always a good visit. When Mr Austen passed she brought his brown demi – boots to Bobby. Said she wanted him to have them. He liked, said was so comfortable. Now he wears every day outside and they are just about gone. Mrs Austen passed on Bobby’s birthday. She was a pretty lady. I believe she was partial to Bobby! Had a long life!

    Love and prayers
    Bobby & Maple Ferguson
