Life in Alicia stored many bright memories with me - more than this composition could hold. They cover everything from childhood joys of crawfishing, calling the cows, ice cream socials, when our spacious lawn was strung with paper Japanese lanterns, to the unforgettable beauty of black passenger trains that passed through the town at night, the chain of lighted windows moving like jewels through the darkness.

I am an old woman. I recall with deep satisfaction the events, the people that have shaped my life. One sister and the widows of two brothers remain from all that big family. They join me in all good wishes for blessings to attend the present Alicia Baptist Church as years go by.

"I will not be afraid of tomorrow, or I have seen yesterday and I love today."
