Umber (33.2 — Lorna’s Story)

I wanted to attend my grandson’s wedding, but the gout prevented me from traveling. So, in the end, only my two granddaughters, Pearl and Jewell, traveled to Kearney to represent the Tibbs family. They did this more out of curiosity than any desire to welcome the bride into our family; in fact, when they returned home, they said that they had not even bothered to speak to her. Instead, they had chided their brother Leroy for abandoning Opal, making sure Vera heard them.
