    I have many fond memories while growing up of family gatherings at Aunt Nadine's in the family room in the basement. We played games, had fun and drank Big Red. And Aunt Nadine's Persimmon Pudding was the best. My condolences go out to the Tritle, Ragsdale, Drummond and Hillan families, who are my dear cousins! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. With love,
