"So sorry to hear of Mae's death. It brings back a lot of memories. Mae was a good friend of my aunt Dorothy Hunt Ferguson in the days before either were married. They lived together and I can remember those days as I was 5 or 6 yrs old. Catherine was my aunt's best friend and we knew the other brothers & sisters. Love & Sympathy to the family."

"Only once in a life time does an aunt and uncle this special come along in a person's life.  My fondest memories growing up as a child are when visiting Aunt Mae and Uncle Frank in Wilmington, at Kerr Lake and at their home on Legion Mill Road in Wake Forest.  They loved everyone around them unconditionally from the bottom of their hearts.  God Bless you both.  Love, Mike & Gail"
