    Greetings to the family of LaVerne Clark. I am Donna (Beck) Tyler. LaVerne and I were first cousins. I would love to get in touch with the family because I have some old photos to share. My mother (Lucille Smith Boyer Beck) left me many mementos of the family including a picture of Uncle Frank (your grandfather) at his graduation in 1921 and one of Aunt Meryl and Uncle Frank at the time of their honeymoon in 1926.

    Your mom called me one day in 2012, We hadn’t seen each other in ages and hadn’t spoken for years. (I’ve lived in Georgia continuously since 1978.) I knew that Allan had passed away, but she told me about Buddy and told me she had bladder cancer. It was very special to me that she called me and we got to visit for a little bit. Looking back on it, I believe that she was telling me good-bye. I was shocked to see that that had to be 9 years ago.

    I hope that you will get in touch with me. I’m sorry that I’ve lost contact with you all.
