    To the Jones family, I am sorry for your loss. I haven't seen Tooker in probably 40 years, but was she was pretty now as she was in the late 40's and 50's. I was great friends with both Peewee and Tooker befor and after they were married. (My wife Jean and I were at their wedding reception) I remember them fondly.
