  1. I would like to know if Mrs. Annie Crossland is the sweet lady who worked in the lunchroom in Hughes Springs cafeteria when I was in school? If so, please accept my sympathy for your beloved husband. If it is you, Mrs. Annie, I want to let you know I remember how sweet and kind you always were when I would come through the line with my tray. I am 62 years old and I still remember the wonderful rolls you ladies made. If this is not the correct person, I am sorry, but I am thinking that it is.Love,Carol Evans Parrymore
