I am saddened to hear of the decease of Hazel (Parchman) Coulson who was a maternal first cousin, once removed of mine. I have wonderful memories of her being present at many of the gatherings of the descendants of our common Laws-Mattingly lines. May our gracious God comfort her family in this time of her loss.
