John, Bernie, and others...

During the snafu with Earthlink (which owns ipa.net among others...) I'm
not certain if all of you got the info or not that I sent out about my
grandmother's death...you'll need to add this to your listings for Pearl
Simpson Smith (real name of Thelma Pearl Simpson, but she absolutely hated
the name Thelma - don't know why, she just did!). Anyway, my grandmother
passed away last Friday, October 5, 2001, at the Cave City Nursing
Home. Her funeral was held on Monday, October 8, 2001 at Eli Lindsey
United Methodist Church in Jesup, Lawrence County, Arkansas, with burial at
Lancaster Cemetery, between Jesup and Strawberry. She was 88 years
old. Her husband's name is James L. Smith.

Also, my great-aunt Vivian's husband's name was William (Bill)
Tokunaga. He passed away in 1955, but my aunt is still with us.

Thanks for updating your files...

Regina
