Mrs. Vennie Kilpatrick otherwise known as Aunt Vennie.
Aunt Vennie played a big part in Daddy’s life as he was growing up and then was in and out of our lives until she passed away probably in the 70s sometime, could have even been in the 80s, the dates are real clear on that for me. I remember when we were in Hattiesburg in the late 50s when my first sister was born. Daddy was in the Korean War at the time and I recall Mama had problems with her legs. Aunt Vennie stayed with us and took care of my brother and me so Mama could tend to the baby. That is just one story I remember of her, there are so many.
