To my dearest mother-in-law Mrs Lillie B. Ghent. Thank you for being the sweetest and most caring mother-in-law I could ask for. Thank you for the cooking lessons and for sharing your home with us. I enjoyed our carpool rides home, when we would meet downtown after work. You was always such a hard worker inside and outside the home. I loved your cheery spirit and confidence. I’m so grateful for having had you as a mother-in-law! Love…Joyce A. Daniels formerly Ghent
