Gary and I always enjoyed being with Houston and Ruby. They would visit Houstons brother (Garys father) and we would always see them. Garys father looked forward to their visits after Garys mother died.

I vaguely remember Houston as a very handsome man when he worked with my step-dad at the cigarette factory.
