I believe that Ms. Murnes worked for my uncle in the 70's as a housekeeper...If she is who I think she is (I was young and never knew her last name), she was a wonderful person....I remember her teaching me how to iron my clothes and she made the best homemade cornbread that existed...I am happy to have known her and I am very sorry for your loss...this picture looks a lot like her from that contagious smile she had...treasure your memories as I do of this awesome kind person!! God Bless!!
