In memory of Cornelia Wallace

I thought I would share with my readers a special note that Cornelia wrote to me and my family when my husband and I met her in 1990.

I am enclosing the front picture of Cornelia's book, and the inside page where she wrote her sentiments to us.

Once vivacious, always vivacious.

Why thank you, Don. Very kind of you to say that. The older I get the more I have to work at the vivacious LOL.

I love this!!! I was eight years old in 1972 when Gov. Wallace was shot, and the image of Cornelia protecting him is forever burned into my memory! In the days and weeks that followed the shooting, I became absolutely captivated by Cornelia, and the rest of the family, too, once I learned that some of the kids were around my age! I was so impressed with how Cornelia loved George through his difficult recovery, and was sad several years later when their marriage broke up. And I only learned last week that we lost Cornelia in 2009. She is one person I wish with all my heart that I could have met! Thanks so much for sharing this note from her!
