Juanita Humphrey (Greiner) (1953)

William D. Humphrey was my little mischievous brother and I loved him a lot.  I was proud of him and so sorry that he had to die so young.  By the way our Mother's Maiden's name was spelled "Morey".  I thank God he is not suffering any more. Love from his sis. Neta.
