Celebration of Life

1 thought on “Richard Twitty”

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss . I didn’t know the boys& I’m sorry. But as we get older we all get scattered. I was at Charles & Eddie Reas wedding. She was so much like her mother. All of us younger girls thought her Mother was so dainty & looked up to her. You had such good parents . I’m so sorry they’re gone. I’ve lost both of mine now. They lived across from Immanuel Church in PONTOTOC.
