    My heart goes out to the entire Woody family for your loss, but to Gordy and Hobart especially. Your mother always seemed to be the quiet soft spoken and wise parent in your family. I will always remember the years I lived across the street from you on Alabama st. May the Lord now reunite Minnie with Hobart Senior for all eternity.
