    Carolyn, Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family. Linda and I always enjoyed the Sunday lunch with you and Ed at the J. D. China Restaurant in Fayetteville.

    Bob, Johnny, Mary, Doris and Ann; being from Madison County, the Gaskill and Phillips families were always close friends. I remember, as a child, going with my Dad to the old Gaskill mill to purchase corn meal. I have a picture of the old mill. If any of you would like a copy, let me know.
