My southern belle mother-in-law welcomed this Yankee lass 45 years ago and I have loved, cherished and found great humor in our relationship. May was an example of grace and grit. Thank you for loving me. I miss you.

May and my father John Brewer were in school at Durham High and attended reunion lunches in later years. I was fortunate to attend some of those gatherings and to have May as a friend. May and her dear friend Margie attended our wedding in 2007, and we were so happy to have them there and to visit with them on other occasions as well. I just learned of May’s passing and will certainly miss her very much.

May King was a precious soul who was a member of my General Davie Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, Durham. As long as she was able, she faithfully the DAR meetings. I stopped by her home on Dixon Road many times to bring her a treat or just talk with her.

I was director of Duke Hospital Auxiliary for over 30 years. I was very fond of prissy May. I often drive down Dixon Road and try to remember which home was. May’s......just yesterday. My heart goes out to her family.

I have many fond memories of going to visit Nana in N. C. Eating breakfast out on her screen porch, going to lunch, sitting out back on the deck at night talking with Nana. But my most special memory, was when Nana woke me up, and only me; it was very very early in the morning. She wanted to show me the dolphins that rarely showed up in the stingray infested waters. We walked along the beach and watched them. It was a special moment for me because she knew how much I would appreciate seeing the dolphins and it was one of our few times we had together just the two of us. I will miss you Nana. You lived a long, full life. - Melissa
