Hi to the Gresham family Dear Aunt Irene- always had a pleasant smile when I saw her & I loved our visits with cousins as a child. Yes - she was all about family. I was very comfortable with her because I knew she was true and honest and would let you know how she felt. I am fortunate to have a loving family of the Greshams & Lula & Buck Hart. The legend lives on through Her and George's family. In Jesus Name- Love one another*** Amen
