I am sorry to learn of Jimmy and Bobby's mother. I remember her from back in the days when the two boys ran track at DeLand High. My condolences to the entire family. Coach Tony Tussing

I have such fond memories of visiting Aunt Margie, Uncle Bob, and my cousins in Florida throughout my childhood. We would get to see the horses and sometimes ride in the back of the truck to help feed. And at the end of the day there was always one of Margie's wonderful home cooked meals. I remember Margie as a no-nonsense woman who ran a tight ship, but was always sweet and kind. We will all miss her greatly.
