    Jimmy I know you probably don’t remember me. I am Carolyn Neighbours Holaday, Uncle Bedford Neighbours daughter,. He was your grandmother Effie’s brother. I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. When I was a kid every summer we would go to Little Rock and would always stop buy and see your mom and day. My mom and your dad would always have some kind of disagreement that didn’t amount to much of anything. My memory of him was he always was smoking a cigar. My prayers are with you and your family. I do know how hard it is to lose a parent. Dad passed away in 1999 at age 92 and mom passed away 2007 at age 82. I still miss them every day.
