    To Devany and Karen, my first cousins, from Melissa (Lisa) Ann Smith-Edmundson in Tulsa, OK (Gerald Smith's oldest daughter-your mom's brother). I love you both and I am very sorry for your loss. Your dad lived a long interesting life. I wish we all would have been able to have been closer. I still remember the Japanese doll with the wigs that your mom gave me as a child. My mom gave it to our neighbor's child when we moved from California to Oklahoma, unbeknownst to me or I would have tried to get her to let me keep it. I played with it a lot. I hope and pray that you and yours are all doing well. My only email address right now is EDMUNME@TULSASCHOOLS.ORG if you ever want to contact me. If you don't I understand since we live so far away from each other, but I would love to hear from you if you want to contact me.
