What a blessed life she must have led! She has lived and experienced so many changes in our country and our people, it is almost beyond belief! I do hope there were those family and friends who listened to her and her counsel from all those years, because we often don’t recognize that even at her advanced age, she was “oh so much wiser than her years”! Books can never begin to teach us what she could have! We lost a lot of history, she witnessed it and “knew it”, I just hope we don’t keep trying to “re-invent it”! God Bless, Mrs. Talley!
