    Good morning. I want to leave a message for the young lady that does the noon program that is expecting a baby. My mom said to tell her if she has her baby on her birthday, May the 19th, she will send her a baby gift. We love her program. She is so pretty and seems so nice. My mom is Elza Mea Hendrix Lemay. In Florence, Al.
    Good luck and have the best day ever. Also mom is kin to the Chambers in Rogersville and Athens. She is from the Lovell family. Anyway I said I would do this for her for her birthday. She will be 85 years young. God bless.
