  1. Aunt Speck was one of influences of my childhood upbringing. I spent many hours playing with Jason and she always fed us good. She always keep me on the straight and narrow as a kid…which was rough job…I will miss her very much…but she is now with her sisters, Francis, Penny, and my momma, Billye Jo…as well as her husband Gene, grandson Jason, Mother and Papaw Lyons.

    To Anna Gene, Tereasa and Kelly I love you all and you are in my prayers!
