    My memories of Dud go back to GWS school. He and Edna were seniors I guess and I always tagged after them. They put up with a 1st grade cousin. Spent the night with Aunt Asie and them ever chance I got. A few years back when I had to go to Winfield AL about ever week I would stop as see Dud. He always had a hug for me. I know we all have drifted apart after death of family members but it doesn’t stop the love and memories. I loved Dudley West glad he was a cousin in law and a part of my growing up years.
