We talked about so.ething & asked where her sister lived, when she told me reese hollow I told her my brother was going to be marrying a young lady from reese hollow. When she asked who that was I told her sarah reese & she proceeded to tell me that was her great niece. I enjoyed talking with aunt frances. She was a beautiful woman & I will be missing her forever.
