  12. I am so sorry to hear of Mr Worsham’s passing. I’ve had his number for a few weeks, meaning to call him and ask him about the Worsham family for a history I am doing. Reading the guestbook, I can see I’ve missed the opportunity to talk to a special man who would have added a lot to the Worsham family history.
    My condolences to you all.
