    She was a gracious, outstanding lady in every sense of the word. The world needs more ladies just like her.

    I am sorry to read about the loss of your Mother. I was riding down Delacroix Street just this week and was thinking about you all and your parents.

    I remember going to Graham and Aleine’s house in Oxford as a child. Graham was a cousin of my mother, Wilma Hart Winstead. As children – my Mom, Graham and Horace – all lived with their Grandmother so they were very close as children. When I would visit Graham and Aleine with my Mom, Aleine was always a gracious hostess and had a sweet spirit. My condolences to all of the family and I will keep everyone in my prayers. –
