My mother, Nannie Belle Clendenin, always loved her neice, Marilyn Blackwell, like a daughter so it was only natural that when Bud and I were living in Washington, D.C., we became close to her family. Marilyn and Jimmy had three children - Windy Grimes Gholson, Wilna Grimes Holcomb and Reynolds Grimes. Each of them are married today and have lovely families. These pages are dedicated to them and their families. I will put up more pages as they send in photos.
