    Dear Louise: We will miss you very much. You meant a lot to us and you were always there when we needed you. You are the link that kept our families connected. I hope that we will not lose our family with the loss of your connections and concerns. Frances is very special. I didn’t get the chance to grow up in Tennessee and really know my cousins and family, but we are still here any time someone needs us. I am grateful that you didn’t let the Watsons forget their “long lost cousins.” We appreciate all you did to keep us connected, especially our family homecomings. It just won’t be the same without you. Your beloved cousins, Jean, Bernice, and Sylvia. We love you!!
