My deepest sympathy. My grandfather was Robert Wheeler Thrasher and my dad was Bobby Ray Thrasher. I remember riding with Aunt Ruby in her yellow Monte Carlo. A snake crossed the road and she threw up her hands and screamed. It wasn't funny at the time but memories of her always bring a smile to my face. She will be missed.
