Email from Verla Williams:

I remember this day ___ years ago. Dad had taken Mom to the hospital, and we three kids waited at home. It was 9:30 when Dad got back home, and he called up the stairs, (we obedient kids were in bed) "It's a girl!" I yelled, "Yippee!!". Guess my thought was I was no longer the only girl in the family.

I also remember the story, and I don't know the names, that 2 of Mom's friends met either downtown or someplace, and the one said, "Did you hear that Agnes had a baby girl?", and the other responded, "No way. I saw her on the street just a little while ago, and she wasn't even pregnant!"

I also remember how I found out that Mom was pregnant. Along about August or September, Mom and I were outside between the wash house and the house, and Mom said to me, "do you like the name Sharon Joy?" and I might have said, Why do you want to know? { : )} or maybe I said, Yah, sure, and then Mom said, That is what we are going to name our baby if it's a girl." Wow!!

So have a good day, Sharon!

Love, Verla
