Dave and Cathy/other family members,
My sincere condolences upon the passing of your Mother. She was a lovely lady. I remember her as a cheerleader for The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets when I was in high school at Fountain City in the 50's. May she rest in peace.
Sincerely, Delores (Austerman) Hawkins
